Clevedon Lions Club present a cheque for £5,000 to Children's Hospice South West.


Thousands of pounds have been handed to a children’s charity after a successful car show.

Clevedon Lions hosted its Classic Car Rally in April in aid of Children's Hospice South West.

On June 17, its president Glynn Hill with fellow Lions Mark Kenyon, Paul Pollock, Peter Groves and David Gwynne handed a cheque for £5,000 to Emma Parker from the hospice in Wraxall.

This year's event brought a record-breaking attendance of more than 200 classic cars together with motorbikes, lorries and even a classic Charabanc which was offering a magical mystery tour.

Plans have already began for next year's event and the Lions have been praised by North Somerset Council for keeping Salthouse Fields, where the event took place, clean and tidy.

The hospice, which is based across three sites, delivers care to children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
