Saturday 28th April saw 70 vintage and classic motor cars; military vehicles and motor cycles stretch the length of the Queensmead Shopping Centre in aid of the Frimley Park Hospital Stroke Appeal. Farnborough Lions second annual classic motor vehicle show was voted a great hit by the public who came out in their thousands to view the magnificent collection and to generously support the Stroke Appeal. Although admission to the event was free, the people of Farnborough and surrounding district were outstanding in their support enabling the Lions to raise £2,000 for the Hospital Stroke Appeal.
Visitors were able to have the drive of their lives in the ultimate Grand Prix experience in the 10 Formula One Driving Simulators in the former Blockbusters premises. Lion President Mike Edwards said “We would like to especially thank Classic Race Simulators for running 10 Race Simulators in the former Blockbusters premises in Princes Mead. All in aid of the stroke Appeal”
Amongst the cars on display was a Tesla Electric Supercar which could be won for a weekend in a super raffle Mike went on to say “It gives us the greatest pleasure to be able to support the Frimley Park Stroke Appeal. We are very grateful to the people of Farnborough for their generosity during the Motor Vehicle Show, together with the traders of Queensmead and Rushmoor Council for their support to help us reach this magnificent total”.
