The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Or­gan­is­ers of Hor­sham’s an­nual Labour Day week­end car and bike show are still wait­ing to con­firm a to­tal fig­ure raised for sick chil­dren af­ter an­other suc­cess­ful event.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Chris Creasy said the event at May Park on Sun­day had con­tin­ued to grow and gen­er­ate a con­sid­er­able fol­low­ing from car and mo­tor­cy­cle en­thu­si­asts across Vic­to­ria and be­yond.

“We had 216 car and bike en­tries this year which was up by eight on last year. It is con­tin­u­ing to gain mo­men­tum,” he said.

“The great thing about the show is the va­ri­ety of ve­hi­cles peo­ple present for the event. We had ev­ery­thing from rel­a­tively un­re­stored vintage ve­hi­cles to modern highly mod­i­fied street ma­chines.

“It’s go­ing from strength to strength and the com­mit­tee is de­lighted that so many peo­ple are will­ing to get be­hind it – not as just a car show, but also as a ma­jor fundraiser.

“We feel the mes­sage is get­ting through that we’re sim­ply just car en­thu­si­asts who want to put on a show to raise money for sick kids.”
