More than 180 cars and bikes took over Clevedon's Salthouse Fields to raise important funds for a children's charity.

The Clevedon Lions Club hosted its fourth annual classic car event on Sunday afternoon with vehicles more than 25 years old travelling from Congresbury's Cadbury Garden Centre to the seafront in Clevedon.

Around 1,500 people came through the gates to view the exhibits and take advantage of the food, trade and craft stalls which were open for business.

The oldest vehicles dated back to the 1920s and 1930s with more modern classics including 1960s Minis.

All the funds raised from the event will go to Children's Hospice South West and other Lions club charities.

Lion Peter Marlow said: “It was the biggest and best show the 
club had organised, with hopefully more than £6,000 being raised.”
