Classic cars heading back to Lytham Green
Classic cars are set to return to Lytham Green this summer.
A provisional date of Sunday, June 27 has been set for the third Classic Car Rally organised in aid of the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
The date is just six days after that which Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said will be the earliest that all Covid restrictions will be lifted and rally organisers are hopeful it will go ahead.
Last year, the event was switched from its June date on The Green because of the pandemic to an October alternative in the grounds of Lytham Hall, but that too was cancelled.
When the rally was last held in 2019, after making its debut the previous year, it raised £8,822 for Rosemere’s campaign to build one of the country’s first acute cancer triage units at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
It attracted more than 1,000 people to admire more than 100 vehicles of all vintages, shapes and sizes and organiser Edward Cook said: “It will be good to be back.
“It’s always a popular event in what is a magnificent setting and it is good to raise funds for a very important charity.”
The event will again be sponsored by local car garage, service and repair centre Auto Expert and will run between 9am and 4pm.
