St James the Great church in Aslackby played host to the drivers in a classic car rally in June in aid of local charity Dementia Support South Lincs (DSSL).

The day kicked off with a coffee in St James' before the drivers and their navigators started their 60-mile round trip. They enjoyed a midway stop at Belton House, before returning to the church for a full afternoon cream tea alongside members of the families supported by DSSL and others.

On the rally were two Chevrolet Corvettes, two Citroen 2CVs, an Abarth 124 Spider and two Morgan Plus 4s. 

All the funds raised go towards supporting over 250 families in the area who are affected in one way or another by dementia. 

The organising committee of the rally said: “This is the third rally we have organised and once again we need to thank the wider Aslackby community for their input – 130 freshly made cream teas is no mean feat – and also St James for allowing us to use their magnificent church and facilities. Dementia is something that can affect anyone, any time, and we are grateful to the owners, drivers and others who attended for their generosity. While our intention is to raise money for this local charity, we are also keen to help raise awareness of the charity and the work it does, and hopefully increase the public’s understanding of dementia.”
