Our thirteenth Classic Car Show managed to find a small window between the showery rain that the tail end of Hurricane Bertha brought the UK in August. A heavy downpour in the middle of the day didn't dampen spirits and all in all the day was a success, raising over £16,000!
£8,000 will be distributed amoungst the four charities, Oakleaf, Cranleigh Riding for the Disabled, Rowleys and TALK with the remainder helping the Cranleigh Lions supporting individuals, families and charitable organisations over the next 12 months.
Brooklands Museum Trust brought radio and TV presenter Ed "Stewport" Stewart with them, who enjoyed the day, chatting with people on the Brooklands stand and taking part in the two arena demonstrations organised by Brooklands during the day. We're grateful to Brooklands and Ed for their support and delighted that Ed will be back on Radio 2 on Christmas Day.
We would like to thank everybody involved with the classic car show in any way, whether supporting financially, helping before or on the day, showing their classic vehicles, having a stall or visiting the show and also to Cranleigh’s residents for their patience on Sunday as a large number of vehicles made their way to and from the Showground.
The 2015 Cranleigh Lions Classic Car Show & Autojumble will be on Sunday 16th August 2015 at the Cranleigh Showground.
