Pendle Powerfest hits top gear for Pendleside Hospice
The money was raised at the first Powerfest car show since the Covid pandemic.
More than 200 cars were on display, as well as entertainment for adults and children including a raffle drawn by Pendleside mascot Penny the Squirrel, with prizes including a campervan holiday and super car driving experience.
Staff and volunteers from Pendleside sold refreshments and raffle tickets which raised £1,098.
Sammi Graham, head of marketing and events, said: “We were chuffed to be selected as charity of the year by Pendle Powerfest. All the group, who are voluntary, put a lot of effort into making it a huge success.
"Thousands of individuals and families came down to enjoy the event and had a great time. The total received by Pendleside is £8,098 which is amazing and I’m told the most which has ever been raised for charity at a Powerfest event. I’d like to thank aeveryone who came along.”
