Over 2,500 vintage and retro lovers rolled back the years and dressed to impress for Vintage Fair on Sunday 8th July, raising over £13,000 for Helen Rollason Cancer Charity!

In its ninth year, the annual charity event was held at Cressing Temple Barns near Braintree and showcased a myriad of vintage stalls including pop up hair and beauty parlour, kitchenalia, fashion, jewellery, pre-loved furniture and more. Over 130 classic cars and motorbikes were on display including vehicles from the Austin 7 Club, classic Fords and Minis, American cars as well as Harley Davidsons, Volkswagens, Messerschmitts and members of the Rochford Hundred Vintage Tractor & Engine Club with their stationary engines. Live music was provided by rock'n'roll band Kingsmen who played their vintage instruments from the fifties, and dancing from LJ's Jive School.

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Fundraising Manager Kate Alden said:

"It was fantastic to see so many people coming along to the Vintage Fair to enjoy themselves while supporting our charity. There were lots of opportunities for shopping with a selection of stalls selling vintage fashion, crafts, jewellery, kitchenalia, furniture and collectables. Plenty of refreshments were available, including Molly Moo's Ices and a VW Camper van bar offering a range of alcoholic beverages. Other delicious food options such as pizzas, a hog roast, gourmet hot dogs, waffles and fudge were also on offer.

The fair has been a great success and looks set to have raised over £13,000, which will go towards supporting those affected by cancer in Essex, London and Hertfordshire. We are a local charity, serving our local community, and every penny raised at this event will go towards ensuring we continue to provide the best possible cancer support care now and in the future.

We would like to thank Cressing Temple Barns for again hosting our event, all of our visitors, stall holders and of course our supporters for making it such a fantastic event!"
