It is estimated that about 10,000 people went to Classics on the Common 2019, which was held on Harpenden Common on July 24.

With 800 cars on display, the Rotary in Harpenden club were raising money for four main charities - Samaritans of Luton, South Beds and Harpenden; Alzheimer's Society; Carers In Hertfordshire; and The Rotary Doctor Bank.

Although the fundraising total has not yet been calculated, previous years on similarly sunny days raised more than £30,000.

Rotary in Harpenden committee member Ridley Whitfield said: "It went very well, we were delighted with the number of people who came with their cars and delighted with the number of spectators.
