THANK YOU to everyone who attended the Classic Cars on Lytham Green event at the end of June, for which Rosemere were the charity partner. The event succeeded in raising an incredible £14,236.05 for us!
The show returned for its third annual outing on Sunday 27th, having had to miss 2020 because of the pandemic. Since it launched in 2018, it has had Rosemere Cancer Foundation at its heart with car and bike owners’ exhibition fees going to support the charity, as well as visitor donations.
With sponsorship from Phil Lee of local car garage, service and repair centre Auto Expert of Lytham, organiser (and long term Rosemere supporter) Ed Cook and his team are able to maximise the donation to Rosemere Cancer Foundation, which in the event’s first year was £3,500 and in 2019, almost £9,000.
Dan Hill, our chief officer, said: “We are extremely grateful to Ed and his team for this phenomenal amount of money. This show is getting bigger and more popular year on year, which is testament to the all hard work that Ed and co do in the months leading up to the event.
“Obviously, I was at the show. It was blessed with good weather but it really is a must for anyone into their classic cars and bikes whatever the elements. I can assure everyone who contributed to the amount raised that the donation will make a big difference to local cancer patients.”
Ed Cook said: “I would like to say a big thank you to our 30 volunteers and Fylde Borough Council for the use of Lytham Green. Next year, we have been asked to run a public car park adjacent to the event and all the money from that will also go into the charity fund.”
Thank you so much to everyone involved!
