North Berwick Rotary Club has hosted its fifth annual classic car tour, raising £8,000 for local charities.

The tour saw 53 classic cars travelling from North Berwick to Carfraemill in the Scottish Borders, before returning to the county for dinner and prizegiving at Gosford House.

A wide array of classic cars were on display, including Ferarris, Jaguars and Porsches, as they travelled across the south-east of the country.

It was the fifth year of the event, with more than £30,000 having been raised over the last five years.

This year’s event saw £8,000 raised for mental health charity Stepping Out and East Lothian Young Carers.

Gordon Symon, car tour organiser, said: “Over 50 classic cars gathered at Tesco in North Berwick for the start of the local Rotary Club’s fifth classic car tour.

“On display was the rally car of local rally legend and garage owner Gerry Fitzelle.

“The cars were flagged off on their 130-mile tour at 10am and followed a route through East Lothian and over Soutra to Carfraemill Hotel, where they stopped for coffee.

“Then they did a loop through the Borders before returning to Carfraemill for lunch, and on to the finish at Gosford House by the hill road through the Lammermuirs.

“Although cold, they were blessed with dry weather and all but one of the cars reached the finish.

“As a result of generous sponsorship from Gilson Gray and other local businesses, as well as the drivers themselves, a magnificent sum of over £8,000 was raised for Stepping Out, East Lothian Young Carers and Rotary charities.”

The club thanked all involved in making the day a success, with a special mention to Gordon Symon, whose hard work organising the tour made the event possible.
