In photos: Pier boss starts 170-car vintage vehicle run from Brent Knoll

More than 170 classic cars took part in a fundraising vintage vehicle run through the Burnham-On-Sea area on Sunday (April 22nd).

The Brimar Vintage and Classic Car Run was held in aid of Children's Hospice South West (CHSW) and started at Sanders Garden World in Brent Knoll.

The vehicles went on show in the car park, as pictured here, before they set off for Weston after being waved off by Michelle Michael, co-owner of Weston Pier.

The vehicles travelled to Weston, where they were displayed on the seafront lawns.

Organisers Mary Curtis and her husband Brian, from Street, said this year's event was the bigger than ever.

Mary told "We had more than 170 classic and vintage cars taking part and were delighted with the support of the drivers and onlookers."

"Last year, the display raised £4,442.36 for CHSW and we hope to have raised a similar amount again."
