After ceasing all commercial contracts to focus on the community transport element of the company, bosses hope to transform the organisation from what it was before.

The event also celebrated 30 years since founder Patsy Brewin walked through March High Street with a bucket asking for donations for a community bus.

Held at the March HQ on Saturday, August 31, the event saw car enthusiasts of all ages park up their pride and joy for event attendees to enjoy.

There were several stalls both selling items and providing information, including Care Network and The RAF Benevolent Fund.

Michelle Irvine, Head of Finance and Funding, was there on the day and says the event was that good, she plans to hold the event every summer from now on.

She said: "It [the event] went really well and I have had some great positive feedback. I've had phone calls from our members saying how much they enjoyed themselves.

"We would like to hold a similar event once a year in the summer to bring people together."

"We just wanted to let people know that we are re-launching and that we are looking for volunteer drivers to help us out."
