Classic Car and Motorcycle Transport Fundraiser returns to Southport

This summer, Southport’s town centre will host the 6th Classic Car and Motorcycle Transport Fundraiser, which is open to the public and admission is free. 

On Saturday, June 22, 2024, from 10am to 4pm, Southport Auto Centre, located at 31 Wright Street, PR9 0TL, will once again play host to the popular event. On that day, the road will be closed.

The Macmillan Cancer Charity will receive all proceeds raised.

This year, a variety of entertainment will be available, including the return of local radio station Mighty FM on site.

Individuals who own vintage vehicles or motorbikes are welcome to bring them along. No reservations are required, just show up.

Southport Auto Centre owner Chris Regan said:

“We are planning an even bigger and better event this year! 

“It keeps growing and getting more and more popular every time. This will be our sixth one.

“We host the event inside and outside Southport Auto Centre, and also utilise six or seven neighbouring car parks near us, while Wright Street will also be closed during the day. 

“One of our highlights will be a vintage fire engine from the British Commercial Vehicle Museum in Leyland which will be giving people rides along Lord Street in return for donations. 

We will have local historian Keith Hick giving talks about Sir Henry Segrave, who broke the land speed record on Southport Beach. 

“There will be all kinds of things going on. People can have the opportunity to win some great raffle prizes and exclusive items to buy.

“Refreshments will be available all day. 

“If anyone has a vintage car or motorbike, we would love to see you bring it down between 9am and 9.30am, before the road is closed. There is no need to book a space in advance, just turn up, and we will accommodate you. 

“The Classic Car and Motorcycle Transport Fundraiser is a fundraiser for the Macmillan cancer charity. 

We raised nearly £3,000 for Macmillan last year thanks to the generosity of everyone who came, and we would love to raise even more for them this year.”
