CLASSIC cars and motorbikes will muster at a charity event for a two-year-old girl with cancer.

The Fight for Lola-Mai Charity Cruise takes place in the car park of Tesco North Harbour on Sunday, April 3, from 6pm to 10pm.

Organiser, Jon ‘Taff’ Evans, said there would be plenty of impressive machines as well activities for children.

He said: ‘We aim to raise as much money as possible and we have businesses coming from as far as Somerset, Kent and Essex.’

Proceeds from the charity cruise will go to the paediatric units at Cosham’s Queen Alexandra and Southampton General, which have been caring for little Lola-Mai Burns, from Havant.

Lola-Mai is undergoing treatment for Wilms’ tumour, a type of kidney cancer.

Taff said: ‘I’ve lost both my parents to cancer so it’s something that’s always been close to me.

‘I thought to myself, there’s no better way to raise money in my mind than going through the car scene.

‘Everybody in the car scene comes together when it comes to charity.’

The charity cruise will feature super cars, American muscle cars, promo girls, a bouncy castle and a bungee run.

There will also be a charity car wash, raffles, scooter and a rodeo bull.

Taff said there would be people coming for across the country for the event.
