BROOMHALL Recreation Ground is to come alive with the toots of classic car horns at the BEN's Vintage and Classic Car Rally and Lynwood Summer Fete.

On Saturday, more than 200 outstanding vintage and classic cars and motorcycles will set out from Ascot Racecourse on a 20-mile Rally Tour via Windsor Great Park, en route to Broomhall Recreation Ground, Sunningdale.

There they will be displayed as a focal point for the Lynwood Summer Fete starting at 12.30pm.

Lynwood Care Centre, in nearby Sunninghill, is owned and operated by BEN, the automotive industry charity, organisers of this annual event.

All funds raised will fund BEN's national operation, which supports present and past motor industry employees and their dependents in times of need.

The fete will be opened by Mike Brewer, TV presenter, best known for motoring programme Wheeler Dealers.

Visitors will be able to get a closer look at the display of vintage vehicles, listen to music by the Soundblast Street Band, watch a birds of prey flying display, an open dog show, barbecue and carvery, miniature train rides and a children's corner.Nigel Howard, the fete committee chairman said: "We are expecting a record number of visitors at the fete, BEN's biggest summer event of the year and, with so much to see and do, it will feel like a giant party and a really enjoyable day out."

Meanwhile, BEN is recruiting volunteers to work in its head office, based at the Lynwood Centre.

The charity is looking to fill three roles - tele-marketing and database support assistant, an events administrator and a marketing assistant.
