THE Vectis Historic Vehicle Club (VHVC) held its 13th annual classic car show at Arreton Barns, in aid of Mountbatten Hospice, Ability Dogs 4 Young People and Beaulieu House.

The event, which took place on June 23, saw a record 300 classic cars exhibited — including MG's, Jaguars and Aston Martin's — along with more than 30 motorcycles.

Bill Rasmussen, vice chairman of the VHVC, said: "It was very successful with the best open day results we have had in 13 years.

"Unfortunately, there wasn't enough space in the car park for visitors, which caused some disruption and disgruntled members of the public, but this was not our fault.

"We will discuss this at our next committee meeting, and I would like to thank the staff at Arreton Barns who were fantastic as always."

Although final figures have not been calculated for this year's show, Bill confirmed it raised more than last years total of £2,500.

Many exhibitors and visitors contributed generously, rounding up their entry and pitch fees to support the local charities involved.

Bill said: "We certainly didn't expect such an increase in numbers, we were thrilled with the turnout and the amount raised for the charities involved."
