The ban on cars in Lynn town centre is being lifted at Easter for a special one-off display in aid of charity.

The Vancouver Quarter open air shopping centre is teaming up with Lynn and District Motor Club to show shoppers some rally and classic cars and at the same time raise money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

About a dozen cars will be on show on Saturday and Sunday, April 19 and 20 when visitors will also have a chance to vote for their favourite car, with a unique trophy going to the owners of the winning vehicle.

There will be a collection for the EAAA over the two days.

Abbie Panks, entre manager, said: “Motorsport is always very popular, so we are delighted to be working with the King’s Lynn and District Motor Club, bringing in these wonderful vehicles, while raising money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance at the same time.

Getting the shoppers to vote on their favourite car adds a bit of fun too.”

KLDMC treasurer, Peter Horsburgh, said: “We are delighted to have been asked to put on this display for such a worthwhile cause and we are really looking forward to meeting members of the public and talking about the cars over the weekend.

“The club will also use the display to flag up a 22-mile treasure hunt it is running the following Sunday, April 27, starting at 2pm in Lynn and finishing in Castle Rising and all are welcome to enter”.
