Hundreds of classic cars and bikes gathered at a country house on the edge of Sheffield for an annual rally which raises thousands of pounds for local good causes.

Renishaw Hall, Eckington, hosted the event, which attracted 1,100 cars and even more visitors.

It is organised by the Rotary Club of Chesterfield and will be supporting Weston Park Hospital Cancer Appeal, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, and Chesterfield’s Ashgate Hospice.

The event was attended by enthusiasts from all over the region and includes classic cars and bikes from across the area.

Entertainment was provided by performers from Direction Theatre Arts.

Alan Clarke, president of Chesterfield Rotary Club, said: “The day was a great success and 1,100 cars turned up, 350 of which were brought by exhibitors.

“It was quite a success. We are still counting up the amount of money raised, but anticipate the total will be in the region of £4,000 to £5,000 for good causes.”
