A classic car and motorcycle gathering is being held in Buxworth at the weekend, to raise money for the local church.

The event, at The Old Vicarage on New Road, is running from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

It is being organised in conjunction with St James’ Church as part of a fundraising drive for urgent repairs which are needed to the church roof.

An entrance fee of £5 for cars and £3 for motorcycles will be charged, with only one charge payable no matter how many vehicles are taken along.

People on foot will be asked to make a £3 donation with all proceeds going to the church.

Sandwiches, cakes and teas provided by the church will be on sale on both days, and there will also be raffle prizes and trophies handed out.

It is hoped to have local World Superbike rider Christian Iddon and his father, ex-TT rider Paul, at the event.
