Car enthusiasts from far and wide drove their Minis to Meldreth at the weekend for a rally that raised a whopping £2,600 for charity.
Trevor Knowles organised the fifth Cambridge International Mini Chill – a festival celebrating the classic motor at Eternit Sports and Social Club in Whaddon Road.
Trevor told the Crow: “I’m a Mini enthusiast and with help from my family we run the entire event. Most Minis present are of the classic type although the BMW type are welcome too.
“The sudden downpour on Saturday didn’t dampen the Mini fans’ weekend and we raised more than £2,600 for local charities. The furthest travelled was two chaps from Berlin!”
The weekend was based around a relaxing atmosphere with most people camping. Day visitors were also welcome with or without a Mini and there was live music for everyone to enjoy.

Next year’s event will take place in the first week of August.
