More than 40 vintage, historic and classic car owners from across Worksop, Retford and Dinnington took part in a special rally from Bawtry to Retford in aid of Respect Carers Awards in Bawtry and Help for Heroes.

The event started at Respect Green Burial Park in Bawtry and finished at the Hop Pole pub in Retford.

The cars involved spanned 100 years of motoring and included a 1911 steam-powered vehicle.

The cars visited three historic inns – the King William in Scafworth, The Bluebell inn Gringley on the Hill and The Blacksmith’s Arms in Clayworth – for free drinks courtesy of the Inn keepers, who all offered refreshing shots and Bucks fizz to all the 40 passengers on the trip.

Gordon Tulley, of Respect Carers Awards, said: “We were amazed how many turned out even in the rain which was rather heavy at times too”.

Alison Finch of Respect GB added: The next event is the main one, August Bank holiday, the 24th, where we will be giving lucky members of the public free passenger rides around Bawtry for Help for Heroes and our Respect Carers charity.

“This will be the second year we have organised the cars for the Respect Bawtry Revival.”

“Lots of Worksop, Retford and Dinington drivers brought some fantastic cars to this run.”

“Sso on 24th August they will reverse the run they did on this occasion and set off from the Hop Pole to Respect GB at Bawtry
