A car retailer in Poole recently hosted a classic car event to raise money for charity.

On 11th April, Volvo Cars Poole on Ringwood Road hosted a special ‘Throwback Thursday’ classic car event, raising £500 for Dorset Cancer Care Foundation, a charity that helps local people and families affected by cancer.

The event featured a range of classic cars for the guests to view, including a Volvo 360 GLT from 1983 and a Volvo 740 TURBO Intercooler Estate from 1989. To add to the nostalgia, team members took a step back in time by dressing up in 80s outfits for the occasion.

Dorset Cancer Care Foundation provided support to team member Michelle McCourt last year when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Michelle is now an ambassador and was on hand to raise awareness of the charity at the event.

Michelle, who works as a Host at Volvo Cars Poole, said: “Dorset Cancer Care Foundation means so much to me. It was fantastic to put on a special event to raise awareness of the charity.

“Lots of people came to see the retro Volvos and take a trip down memory lane. We’d like to thank everyone who attended and made the day such a success.”

James Litton, General Manager and Director, added: “Here at Volvo Cars Poole we are so proud of Michelle becoming an ambassador for such an important charity.

“Everyone enjoyed looking at the wide range of classic cars on display and we are delighted to have raised such valuable awareness of the Dorset Cancer Care Foundation.”
