South Shropshire Family Business Raises £5000.00 for Macmillan at Annual Classic Motor Show
Eaton Manor Country Estate near Church Stretton held its fifth annual Classic Motor Show on Sunday with over 170 classic and interesting vehicles on display, from a Lagonda Rapier, an SS Jaguar and Singer Junior to modern classics including a Minis, Porsches and an LSE Range Rover, as well as a stationary oil engine and a variety of vintage tractors and bikes.

Entry was free of charge for exhibiting vehicles as well as visitors, with the £5000 raised from refreshments including a barbecue, bar, light lunches, teas and a tombola, raffle and donation pots.

There were also a number of craft and gift stalls, as well as special interest groups on display for visitors, including the Telford & District Amateur Radio Society and Telford Railway Modellers Group, and rides on mini Land Rover Defenders and a mini train on tracks for younger visitors.

All proceeds will go to Macmillan Cancer Support in Shropshire as part of Eaton Manor’s ongoing support of the charity.

Eaton Manor Owner, Nichola Cariss, said: “Thank you to everyone who exhibited their vehicles and to all the visitors who came along to admire some amazing pieces of machinery spanning all ages. It was a beautiful May day and we had a fantastic turnout.

“A special thank you to everyone who sponsored the event, in particular Britpart and Bauer Media, and supported by donating raffle prizes and giving up their time to help with refreshments, selling raffle tickets and vehicle marshalling, and to all those who came along on the day.

“Thanks to everyone’s generosity we reached our target and raised £5000.00.”
