More than £2,600 was raised on the day which will be given to the Sussex-based charity Canine Partners which provides trained dogs to assist people with complex disabilities, such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, MS, polio, spina bifida, spinal injuries, amputees, and injured personnel from the armed forces.

Car owners and guests gathered at The Halfway House for coffee and biscuits served by Uckfield Lions before driving off for a run through Sussex countryside.
