Hundreds of classic cars will be on display in Leamington later this year as part of an annual fundraising event held by the Leamington Rotary Club.

Cars at the Spa will take place at the Pump Room Gardens on Sunday September 26 with live entertainment throughout the day, food and drink outlets and a picnic area.

Cars from individual owners and classic car clubs across the region will be at the show and there will be free admission to the public between 10.30am and 4pm.

Barry Andrews, chairman of the Rotary club’s fundraising committee, said: “All the money raised will go to local charities and some international relief operations and I would like to thank David Derbyshire at Kia Warwick for agreeing to be our generous sponsor again.

“We are also very grateful to Leamington BID for helping finance the event, and to Newsline PR for again providing us with a full public relations campaign of press, social media and design.”

With the show being cancelled last year, Mr Andrews said it was all the more welcome that these organisations were donating their time and money so that every penny raised could go to deserving charities whose fund-raising had suffered during the pandemic.

“In addition, we will be inviting visitors to make a donation and there will also be programmes on sale,” he said.

David Derbyshire, managing director of sponsors Kia Warwick, said: “Leamington Rotary Club does tremendous work in raising money for charity and we have sponsored many of their golf days in the past.

"We are very pleased to be sponsoring this event again and fully support their efforts in making it an annual feature of the town.”
