Mayoral Send-Off of For Lancashire High-Performance Car Fundraiser

More than 50 Porsche drivers took part in an 83-mile Lancashire drive out this weekend, raising money for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

The Red Rose Run started from the new Porsche Centre Preston in Watery Lane on Sunday (August 11th), where the cars were flagged off by David Borrow, Mayor of Preston, at 9 am.

This year’s Red Rose Run, organised by Porsche Club GB, Lancashire Region, was the ninth and so far the annual events have raised a combined total of over £20,000 for local charities.

For Porsche Club GB, Lancashire Region, David Baker said: “The Red Rose Run has become a firm favourite in our club diary. It’s the perfect blend of friendship, beautiful scenery and iconic motoring.

“We are especially grateful that the Mayor has agreed to attend and set us off and to Porsche Centre Preston for hosting our members before the journey begins.

“This year’s event is especially important because our beneficiary, Rosemere Cancer Foundation, has assisted several Porsche Club GB members and their families over the years.”

This is the latest event to take place at the recently-opened Porsche Centre Preston. In June, Porsche Cars GB managing director Marcus Eckermann joined more than 500 guests to celebrate the official opening.
