Classic and vintage car day helping to raise money for charity

Classic and vintage car enthusiasts are being invited to a Heritage Run, organised to help raise money for local charities.

The Broadland MG Owners' Club is inviting owners of MG and other classic cars to take part in its 22nd annual Heritage Run on Bank Holiday Monday, May 2 this year.

The event, which attracts more than 180 entries each year, will be starting at the Caister-on-Sea Lifeboat Station, taking a 70 mile route through the Norfolk countryside to a surprise finish.

The actual location of the finish is a well-guarded secret, but organisers are promising a treat that 'will be well worth visiting'.

Entry is open to all classic and future classic cars and previous entrants have included everything from Fords to Ferraris.

All entrants will receive a rally plate, tulip map, finishers' plaque, plus a bacon roll at the start, with the first car away from Caister at 9am.

The money raised will go to charity and last year the Heritage Run raised over �3000 for local charities including the Caister Lifeboat, the Norfolk and Norwich Cancer Unit at Colney and the Starlight Children Foundation.
