Solicitors Gear Up for Classic Car Rally in aid of Cancer Research UK

TWO solicitors are swapping the office for the open road to take part in a classic car rally.

Slater and Gordon Solicitor will be among hundreds of motoring enthusiasts taking part in the Yesteryear Road Run.

The event, an annual tradition which was scrapped but then revived last year, is a day-long rally through the Cambridgeshire countryside in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The Solicitor's colleague said: “The car attracts attention wherever we go and it’s great to be able to use that to put the spotlight on Cancer Research UK.

“This event is a great way to help raise awareness and funds and have some fun at the same time.”

The Slater and Gordon Solicitor is an industrial disease specialist who will be collecting contributions from the passenger seat, added: “We deal with clients affected by industrial diseases like asbestos-related lung cancer and mesothelioma every day.

“Not only is this a great event for a great cause but it’s also close to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge which is one of the key centres for cancer research in the country.”

Hundreds of vintage and classic cars and motorbikes will take part in the road run this Sunday (April 19) which starts in Cottenham at 9.30am, returning at around 4pm. Entertainment and refreshments will be available all day on the village green.

Drivers will take in Rampton, Willingham, Over, Swavesey, Longstanton, Oakington and Histon on the scenic route.
