A supercar show at Meadowhall raised more than £6,000 for a South Yorkshire hospice charity.

The shopping centre hosted the display of motoring excellence earlier this month. The event was organised to raise funds for the North Anston-based Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

People were not put off by the heavy rain on the day, and thousands came along to see a range of classic Porsches, Lamborghinis, Ferraris and more.

Sheffield car dealer John Holland provided a display of cars for the show and made a £500 donation, helping to bring the overall total to £6,610.

John Holland’s display included a car inside the centre itself - a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

The free event, organised by Supercar Driver, was a rebrand of the Supercars in the City show held in Sheffield in 2012 and 2013.

Visitors had the chance to enjoy a passenger ride in a car of their dreams courtesy of Sporting Bears, a dedicated group of classic car and sports car enthusiasts who raise money for children’s charities through social and touring events, in return for a small donation.

John Holland managing director Mark Holland said: “We were excited to take part in this event, which was all for a fantastic cause.

“It was a brilliant experience for everyone who came along. If you haven’t already, donate what you can to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice via their website.”

Supercar Driver director Adam Thorby added: “We’re proud of how good the turn-out was for the event, both by our members and the general public, and of course it’s always great to support a cause as good as Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.”
