Eckington Show gears up for charity

Eckington ShowVisitors to this year’s Eckington Classic Car and Bike Show will be helping to raise valuable funds for Bluebell Wood and other charities.

The annual car show at Renishaw Hall in Derbyshire, is on Wednesday 13 June this year. It has raised over £100,000 for local charities since it started 15 years ago, with Bluebell Wood receiving £3,800 last year.

The Rotary Club of Chesterfield organises the event, raising money through the entrance fees paid by exhibitors and spectators, and via sponsorship and the food and drink stall holders.

Lucy Rathbone, Community Fundraiser, Bluebell Wood, said: “The Eckington Show will be a great afternoon out, so I hope as many people as possible go along, have a fantastic time and help us raise as much as possible for our families.

“Every penny raised will help Bluebell Wood support families facing the toughest of times, helping them to make special memories, whether they have days, months or years left together.”

The event will run from 3-8pm on Wednesday 13 June. Entry is £10 per vehicle. For more details please visit
