A Pembrokeshire farmer who organised a classic car run in aid of the children’s cancer charity that supported his family when his grandson was receiving treatment for a brain tumour has raised £3,520.

Martin Evans, of West Farm, Cosheston, was keen to show his appreciation to Llandough Aims to Treat Children with Cancer and Leukaemia with Hope (LATCH) so he organised a classic car run.

Sixty-four vehicles, some nearly a century old, took part in the 56-mile run around south Pembrokeshire, culminating in a barbecue at Bubbleton Farm, Penally, where Martin’s son, Tom, runs a farm shop.

“We had tremendous support on the day, we are very grateful to all the organisations, businesses and individuals who gave donations and donated raffle prizes for such an important cause,’’ said Martin.
