CLASSIC cars lined-up in Leamington for the annual ‘Cars at the Spa’ show.
Some 200 cars parked up for the annual charity fundraiser, organised by Leamington Rotary Club, which was staged at the Pump Room Gardens.
Rotarians are hoping the event will have rased more than £2,000 which will be divided equally between Leamington-based homeless charity Helping Hands and Alzheimer’s UK.
The show was opened by town mayor Nick Wilkins, who got to choose the car he would most like to go home in.
And for Coun Wilkins that was a 1958 MGA 1500 owned by Anthony Dean.
Restored inside and out and re-sprayed in original glacier blue in 2021, the car often wins awards, and on this occasion a family ticket to the British Motor Museum at Gaydon.
It was Anthony’s first appearance at Cars At The Spa and he will certainly be back.
He said: “The gardens are a great place for the show, it is one of the best venues in the Midlands.”
organisers are still trying to track down the winner of the Lucky Programme – numbered 0433 – who has a dinner for two at Leamington Italian restaurant, La Copolla awaiting them. They should contact [email protected] toclaim their prize.
The show was again sponsored by Kia Warwick, while Leamington BID helped finance the event and print the programmes.
