Dealership’s drive to help Rosemere with classic car show

Classic cars collectively worth a six figure sum went on show at Preston car dealership Robins & Day to raise £300 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Owners of MGs, AC Cobras, BMWs, Triumphs and others paid an entry fee of between £3 and £5 to show their vehicles in what was the second annual car show hosted by the Blackpool Road garage and organised by service supervisor Nick Green, who put his own MG BGT into the display.

The money raised by the car show takes the total donated to Rosemere Cancer Foundation by Robins & Day to almost £3,000 over the last 18 months with the dealership now a year and a half into a two year commitment to the charity.

Besides its car shows, there have been donations on cars sold, prize draws, Christmas jumper days and sponsorship money from a coast to coast cross country staff cycle.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria being treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre, the region’s specialist cancer treatment centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, and also at another eight local hospitals, including Chorley and South Ribble District Hospital. It funds vital equipment, research, training and other cancer services that are beyond limited NHS resources.
