Motor show a marvel for Hospice Marlborough


Staff reporter

Hundreds of car enthusiasts have helped raise money for a great cause while enjoying a huge display of vehicles from across the decades.

The popular Annual Hospice Vehicle Display got underway at Waterlea Racecourse on Sunday, drawing in eager crowds keen to see the motoring gems on display.

And while the total amount of money being raised is being tallied-up, every cent will stay in Marlborough to provide hospice care for local people and their families.

Each month, the local hospice helps 100 people from across the region. $850,000 needs to be raised annually to allow hospice to continue providing free palliative care services across Marlborough.

From modern Minis and sleek sports cars to a variety of vintage road runners, there was plenty to keep the happy crowds entertained.

As the sun shone, there was something for all to enjoy, including the popular Meaters of Marlborough Hospice BBQ, food and drink stalls and raffles.

All proceeds from the special day, arranged by Pat Pascoe and the team at Classic Cars Marlborough, are used locally to support Hospice Marlborough.

Thanks to all those who supported the Marlborough Hospice Car Show by either displaying a vehicle or giving a gold coin donation to admire the vehicles.
