Farnborough Classic Car Show 2024 

Thank You All For Your Support

We would like to send a BIG THANK YOU out to the classic car owners in the Farnborough area who made the 2024 Farnborough Classic Car Show such a success. Gleaming classic and vintage cars, motor bikes, military vehicles, a vintage bus and lorry lined the whole length of the Queensmead Shopping Centre.

Our sincere thanks also go out also to the people of Farnborough for their outstanding support.

The event was held in aid of Farnborough and Aldershot Lions Prostate Cancer Screening Event being held later this year. The Car Show raised in excess to £1,000 which will be used to help fund the cancer screening event.

We aim to provide 250 free PSA blood tests for local men. One in 8 men between the ages of 40 and 70 in the UK will get prostate cancer. This figure rises to 1 in 4 with men of colour.

Last year Farnborough Lions ran a similar screening when 244 men were tested. 15 of these tests showed a higher that normal PSA level requiring these men to consult their doctor.

During the Classic Car Show a local man made himself known as one of those tested last year which resulting in a prostate cancer diagnosis. He has subsequently been treated successfully . He thanked us for making his diagnosis possible so catching this awful disease in time thus saving his life.

It is feedback like this that makes our fundraising and community service activities in Rushmoor so worthwhile. If you would like to find out more about how your local Lions Clubs work in the community please email secretary@farnborough-lions.org.uk
