Nearly 50 Porsches set off from Garstang Country Club on Sunday morning in glorious sunshine on the 'Red Rose Run' organised by the Lancashire region of the Porsche Club.
The cars were waved off by the Mayor of Garstang and the first part of the route took them through the streets of Garstang where lots of onlookers had turned out to see these magnificent cars. The route then continued into the Ribble Valley taking in the scenery at its best. After passing through Clitheroe the Porsches headed to Hoghton Tower, between Blackburn and Chorley, where members of the Porsche Club were welcomed, many enjoying a picnic lunch and finding some shade under the trees.
Many members took advantage of a splendid tour through the buiilding, with lots of historical information about the family and the buildings.
Afterwards presentations were made back at Garstang where an evening meal was served and presentations made. There was no charge for entry but participants were invited to make a donation to Rosemere. £717 was raised.
Thanks to all who took part in this event and also to the staff of Hoghton Tower for their hospitality.
