Vintage cars take part in tour from Black Country to Worcestershire for charity

By Dayna Farrington | Stourbridge | News | Published:

Dozens of vintage cars travelled from the Black Country along the Worcestershire border in a bid to raise much-needed cash for a cancer charity.

The Worcestershire County Boundary Classic Car Tour 2019 took place on Sunday(28) and saw nearly 40 vehicles travel more 130 miles starting from Stourbridge, and back again.

Drivers met at the Greyhound pub, in Norton Road, at around 8am before drivers took to side roads along the Worcestershire border and back to Stourbridge – for 133 miles.

The oldest car that took part was a 1940s Ford Tudor, while all the cars involved were more than 20 years old.

The tour helped to raise £339 for White House Cancer Support, based in Dudley.

Event organiser, Mark O'Neill, said: "The car tour went very, very well – I think we only had one puncture throughout the whole day!

"We set out the original route four to five years ago when I wanted to test out an old car and friends wanted to join in.

"On Sunday, we did 133 miles around the Worcestershire border, starting and finishing at the Greyhound Pub.

"We had 34 cars take part in total – and none of them were less than 20 years old.

"We raised £339.70 for White House Cancer Support which is great."

Prizes were awarded for best car and best costume.

The Worcestershire County Boundary Classic Car Tour started in 2015 to raise money for local causes. The event is held twice a year – with the next tour due to take place in September.
