A VINTAGE car and classic vehicle tour has raised for than £6,000 for a local charity.

Over 100 vintage cars took part in the Ben Windsor Great Park Vintage & Classic Vehicle Tour 2017 as well as four classic motorcycles, all from pre-1965.

The 50-year-old event saw entrants set off from Ascot golf club, through Windsor Great Park, finishing back in Ascot for a BBQ, live Jazz music, a raffle and celebrations.

The vehicles were judged and prizes awarded for those in the best or most original condition.

Kelly Neal, Head of Events at Ben, a non-profit charity said: “We’ve been running this special event for almost 50 years now and it’s very popular with vintage motoring enthusiasts from across the country. The vehicles are always truly impressive and have been extremely well cared for over the years.

“We’re absolutely delighted with the fundraising amount this year and we can’t thank our supporters enough as these funds will help us provide life-changing support for colleagues in the automotive industry. 

"We would also like to say a big thank you to all the volunteers that help pull the event together and Valet Pro for providing the winning prizes.”
