Car enthusiasts came together in an event to celebrate more than one hundred years of motoring and raise money for charity.

Employees and retirees of Ford brought their vintage cars to the Ford HQ in Warley for the seventh annual Ford Warley Vehicle Enthusiasts’ Day.

Guests were able to take a ride in the 1915 Ford Model T for a donation and the event raised £100 for The J’s Hospice in Great Baddow.

There was also a line-up of Cortinas to celebrate 50 years since the first one was produced. Mustangs, Jaguars and Porsches all made an appearance, as well as the historical 1909 Daimler.

Editor of Ford News Kelvin Brown said: “It was excellent. We had some rain but it didn’t flag anyone’s spirits. It was a very good day.

“We had some guests from the J’s Hospice, who were able to enjoy the day, which is very pleasing. It is a very good cause.”
