As spotted in the online edition of the Sunday Times (26/4/20)

CLASSICS FOR CARERS STAY-AT-HOME MOTOR SHOW TO RAISE MONEY FOR NHS WITH DRIVEWAY EXHIBITS
Buy a sticker for your classic car or support via Just Giving
WITH ALL public gatherings postponed or cancelled in the UK during to the coronavirus epidemic, an innovative way for classic car owners to exhibit their cars has been conceived, with funds raised going to the NHS and frontline carers.

Open to all classic car and bike enthusiasts, Classics for Carers is a “stay-at-home motoring event” that could see prized vehicles taking pride of place on driveways across the UK on Sunday, May 3. They can then be enjoyed by local communities, as residents head out for their permitted daily exercise, and exhibitors are being encouraged to share their motors on social media, using the hashtag #classicsforcarers, for people to enjoy further afield.

“The first weekend in May is an opportunity to throw open the garage doors, pull off the covers and join like-minded enthusiasts in supporting the incredible NHS heroes”

Event organiser Nick Chivers, a classic car owner, automotive photographer and writer, aims to use the event to raise money for frontline carers. Participants are asked to purchase an event rally plate or sticker for their vehicles, and enthusiasts encouraged to make a donation via the Classics for Carers JustGiving page.

All profits will go to NHS Charities Together, the membership organisation representing, supporting and championing National Health Service (NHS) charities across the UK.

Announcing the event, Chivers said: “Springtime typically sees the classic motoring calendar in full swing, with enthusiasts, fans and the industry itself coming together to celebrate and socialise at a variety of shows, races and meetings.

“While the government advice to stay home, protect the NHS and save lives is being widely supported, social distancing measures have meant that motoring enthusiasts have swapped time spent at displays and events, for time spent tinkering and polishing at home.

“The first weekend in May is an opportunity to throw open the garage doors, pull off the covers and join like-minded enthusiasts in supporting the incredible NHS heroes, working selflessly in exceptional circumstances.”

Classics for Carers takes place across the UK on Sunday, May 3. For event details, donations and purchases, visit classicsforcarers.com.

Cars unwashed and on show......along with some neighbours who have displayed everything from a Bedford pick up to a Model A Ford, they see, to be causing some interest among the local walkers and bikers.

It will be interesting to see how many Lancias we managed to get on show yesterday, I saw the organisers website earlier they had raised over £10,000 early last night.

Thanks for all LMC members (and others) that took part.

It seems it may be a monthly thing so if more folk want to show their cars the next Stay at home Motor Show is in a couple of weeks on Sunday June 7th.

If you do show your Lancias, post photos on the forum and I will send to Jack as a group article.
