The event was started by Gary Smith as a way to say thank you to the hospital after his granddaughter underwent open heart surgery when she was just seven days old.

This year's event will be held on Sunday, May 21, at Corton playing field, and will include vintage, classic and sports cars, motorcycles, power boats, buses, craft stalls, trade stands, a bouncy castle, raffle, refreshments and more.

The event will run from 10am to 4pm, with all proceeds going to the charity, which enables the hospital to provide world class care and to pioneer new treatments and cures for childhood illnesses.

Last year the show attracted more than 300 vehicles and hundreds of visitors.
