THE North Devon Sports and Classic Car Run will be leaving from the stunning location of Hartland Abbey at 8.30am next Sunday (August 23.)
The event will be raising money for North Devon Hospice and will finish at the English National Sheepdog Trials and Devon Country Fayre, which runs from August 21-23 at Castle Hill, Filleigh.
The Classic has been a popular event in the hospice's fundraising calendar for many years. Event organiser, Emma Lowe said: "We are thrilled to be able welcome event sponsors, Devonshire Motors who are supporting the event this year.
"So far more than 100 vehicles have been signed up to take part in either the 60 or 80 mile routes that take in some of jewels of North Devon villages, coastal views and country lanes."

So if you are out and about around North Devon and see any of the cars, identified by unique car plates, then please do give them a wave. If you are a sports or classic fan you will be able to view them first hand at their destination of Castle Hill from approximately 1pm onwards on the Sunday.

Emma added: "If you own a sports or classic and would like to take part there still is time to enter if you're quick.
"Simply call me on (01271) 347213 to arrange. All the monies raised will enable the hospice to continue to care for local people who are living with a life-limiting illness, offering a range of services that benefit the whole family.
