The Chaddesley Corbett Classic Car and Bike Show at the Swan Inn helped raised thousands of pounds for vital equipment for a hospital.

Gadget Show presenter Jon Bentley was the celebrity judge at the Chaddesley Corbett Classic Car Show, which saw more than 110 vehicles – provided free of charge by enthusiast Mark Cowmeadow – on display.

The event, held on August 29, and raised more than £3,200 which will be donated to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham

Jon Bentley, who also used to co-present TV car show Fifth Gear, said: “The Swan is one of my favourite pubs with a spacious well-kept garden.

 “To be able to sit there with a pint of Batham’s and contemplate the field behind it full of classic machinery is a sheer delight.

“The range of cars was even wider than last year – from a brown Austin Maxi and an original-looking Triumph Toledo through to a magnificent Lagonda and a gloriously rebuilt Allard Palm Beach.

“My own favourites were an Austin A40 Sports that had been lovingly and carefully restored, a Nissan 300ZX that was in proud family ownership, and a 1956 Austin Healey 100m that graced the company’s motor show stand back in the day.”
