CLASSIC car enthusiasts enjoyed a real treat at the popular Motorama 2012 event at the weekend.

The annual spectacle attracts cars of all ages and marques with more than 100 vehicles on display.

The impressive line-up on show in Olney Market Square included vehicles from the pre-war era to 1955, including an Aston Martin MK2 and Bentley 4.5 litre.

Post war vehicles included an Austin A60, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible, with vehicles of special interest including a Willys Jeep MB, Aston Martin DB9 Voante, and Ferrari 599 GTB F1.

There were also a large number of classic cars including a Pointiac Firebird, Ford Mustang, and Ford Capri Mk3.

Motorama is one of the many activities organised by the Newport and Olney Lions Club, which regularly donates around £10,000 a year to charitable causes.

Last year the club donated around £5,000 to help charitable causes, including Christmas parcels for pensioners and MK Special Dons, and £3,600 to other causes including Willen Hospice and Canine Partners, while £1,200 was given to international charities including the Lions water Aid appeal and Sierra Leone Appeal.

Members are always looking for new Lions to help with a range of activies held throughout the year.
