He said: “It was a bumper turn out of classic cars and everything in between from Bond Bugs and Austin A30s to Porsche 911s and Toyota Supras.

“Despite rain of biblical proportions, fun was had by all and the show was a great success.”

As well as the collection of cars, visitors enjoyed live 
music and entertainment, 
plus learning more about 
the work of The Donkey Sanctuary.

All proceeds from the car 
show will help fund the work of The Donkey Sanctuary worldwide.
