Car rally stays on course
Thirty-five cars took part in an annual car fun run and treasure hunt across Ashford for charity.
The event on Sunday, which started from Sandyacres sports club in Sandyhurst Lane, was organised by Cliff Boulton.
It raised funds for the Ashford Pilgrims Hospice in memory of Cliff’s son, Mark.
The run was originally intended to be for classic cars but all types of cars are now welcome.
Participants are given a map marked with different coloured stickers indicating where the answers to 30 questions can be found.
The cars have to visit as many of the places indicated, using any route they choose, in the time allowed to score points.
Mark Boulton, who died of cancer at the Pilgrims Hospice in 2014, was a classic car enthusiast who would have been 50 this year.
Cliff Boulton, 75, said: “Everything went smoothly. The feedback was brilliant. Everyone enjoyed it.
“It’s in memory of Mark. He loved that sort of thing.”
Each participant made a voluntary sealed donation to Pilgrims.
