A heartfelt thanks to over 200 vintage vehicle owners and enthusiasts who braced the British elements on Sunday at the annual classic car rally held at Attingham Park in support of Severn Hospice.

The keen motorists whizzed along the Shropshire lanes from our hospices in Shrewsbury and Telford onto Ironbridge, finally reaching the classic car rally at the National Trust’s country house.

Hundreds of vintage vehicles were showcased in front of the grand Grade I listed building, picnics were held, games were played and the Telfordaires barbershop choir sang three sets to an enthused audience.

Rebeckah Ingham, from the National Trust and Severn Hospice nurse, Tom Davis, judged the competition, with Andy Taylor-Jones’ Triumph Spitfire winning the first prize winner’s cup and Michael Davies’ 1948 Jaguar 3.5 receiving the runner up award.

 The event organiser, David Sear, said: “Thank you to each and every one who came along in true British spirit despite the weather.

 “For the ninth year running we had the most fantastic time and saw some of the most beautiful vintage and classic cars in the area.

 “Supporters return every year and the event gets bigger with more cars, more people and more money raised for the hospice’s work to support families throughout the region.”
