More than 60 classic vehicles lined the promenade at The Leas on the Isle of Sheppey on Sunday 23 August with the main aim being to promote the Islands excellent beaches and holiday facilities.

This was the first year the event had taken place and even though the weather took a turn for the worse in the afternoon, the day itself was very successful with lots of visitors and some fabulous cars on display.

The event was organised by The Swale Vehicle Enthusiasts Club who are based on the Island and have raised money for the RNLI at previous shows. With this in mind and not wanting to miss an opportunity, RNLI charity buckets were strategically placed along the promenade and when they were later emptied a sum of just under £200 had been raised.

Sheerness lifeboat press officer Vic Booth said: ‘It was a great idea to put out the charity buckets and even more gratifying when they were emptied. Our thanks to the organisers and to all who donated.’
