Driving support for children’s hospice
A classic car rally beginning in Bristol saw 46 vehicles embarking on an 80-mile journey through Somerset and Gloucestershire, with Bristol’s Lord Mayor Cllr Peter Main waving a flag to start proceedings. The route encompassed Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge and participating cars included a 1929 Bentley Tourer, a selection of Jaguar E-Types and Austin Healeys, plus many other British and European classics.
Along the route the cars drove through the grounds of Children’s Hospice South West, which provides care for terminally ill children and was the chosen charity for the day arranged by Park Street Events (Freemasons of Bristol). Rally organiser Chris Cook said: ‘I was inspired to organise the rally after visiting Children’s Hospice South West at Little Bridge House in Barnstaple, Devon.’
