Local charities set to benefit from classic car and bike show
Local charities are once again set to benefit when hundreds of classic cars and bikes turn up at the picturesque Ashover Show Ground this Sunday for an all-day rally, which is expected to raise thousands of pounds for local charities.
The Ashover Classic Car & Bike Show will be attended by enthusiasts from all over the region and is expected to include classic cars, bikes and scooters from all eras.
Organised jointly for the seventh year running by the Rotary Clubs of Chesterfield, Chesterfield Scarsdale, Clay Cross and Matlock this annual charity event has now raised a total of over £70,000 for local charities.
There will be attractions for all the family, with a variety of refreshment stands and licensed bars. There is also musical entertainment and displays in the main event arena, kids rides, and a large side show with Autojumble and an Arts and Craft Fair.
This year, specialists from event partner H&H Classics, Europe’s largest specialist classic vehicle auction house will be in attendance at the show. The H&H team, in association with the UK’s specialist insurance and valuation expert for classic cars, Hagerty International, will be able to discuss just about everything to do with the cars from condition, history and a general idea of what it might be worth. If required they can also put owners in touch with Hagerty International for a formal valuation.
