Over 2,500 visitors came from all over the region to the event which is organised by Chesterfield Rotary Club and raises thousands of pounds for three local charities :- Weston Park Cancer Charity, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and Chesterfield’s Ashgate Hospice.

The event raised £6,000.

The classic car winner, voted for by the exhibitors, was Colin Payne, of Mansfield Woodhouse, with his superb 1963 2.2 litre TR4.

Congratulations also to the classic bike winner Alan Wood of Mastin Moor, with his tidy 650cc BSA Rocket Goldstar – his first ever win.
