South Leicestershire MP, Alberto Costa, has hailed the ‘extraordinary’ fundraising efforts of the Rotary Club of Lutterworth after their 15th Annual Plant, Craft & Food Fair at Misterton Hall raised almost £6,000 for the Rotary Foundation and Parkinson’s UK.
Alberto joined over 1,000 visitors to the Rotary Plant Fair, and he also presented the award for best vintage/classic car to the owner of a 1933 Morris Minor Saloon.
Around 55 vintage/classic cars attended the Fair alongside the Lutterworth Town Band.
Alberto said, “I was delighted to once again attend the Rotary Club of Lutterworth’s fantastic Annual Plant, Craft and Food Fair in the wonderful grounds of Misterton Hall. The event is a real highlight of South Leicestershire’s social calendar, and I was honoured to present the award for the Best Vintage/Classic Car and support the Rotary Club’s event.
I would like to sincerely thank all at the Rotary Club of Lutterworth for their tireless work in making this year’s Fair such a success, and of course I would like to pay tribute to their extraordinary fundraising efforts in which they have raised almost £6,000 for two brilliant charities”.
The Rotary Club of Lutterworth added, “It was a brilliant day, which raised approximately £6k which will be divided between two charities, Rotary Foundation and Parkinson’s UK. The Rotary Club of Lutterworth would like to thank all of those people that came out to support us, the stall holders for offering such a great retailer experience, the vehicle owners for a super show, the volunteers without which this would not have been possible and Mrs Craven whose garden looked spectacular. We look forward to seeing you all again next year at the usual time of year, put the date in your diary, 14th May 2023.
