Vintage and classic cars will rev up once more as a popular fund-raising event returns to Corton this weekend.

After the success of the inaugural classic car show on the Corton village playing fields last year – where hundreds of people turned out – classic vehicles, sleek sports cars, vintage motorcycles, powerboats and buses will return for the event next Sunday, May 22.

This year's show at Corton playing field, near Lowestoft, will once again raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.

The event was organised by Garry Smith to raise funds for the hospital that helped save his granddaughter.

Mr Smith's Lotus Elise has had a very special makeover for this year's event, which runs between 10am and 4pm.

'This is going to be a great family day out, with all proceeds going to Great Ormond Street Hospital again.'
