A vintage vehicle event which over the years has raised more than £30,000 for Manorlands is being held this weekend.

The fifth Bront Vintage Gathering takes place tomorrow and on Sunday at its regular Haworth Road, Cullingworth, venue.

The event was born when a group of friends with a shared passion for vintage vehicles -- from tractors to motorbikes -- decided to use their hobby to raise money for charity.

Now it has grown into a hugely popular annual festival, which last year alone raised £10,000 for the Oxenhope Sue Ryder Care Centre.

Only one year has been missed, when the gathering -- which is held on a farmer's field -- had to be cancelled due to the foot and mouth crisis.

Attractions this year include a range of vintage tractors, cars, motorbikes, commercial vehicles, stationary engines, displays, craft stalls, horses, side shows, traction engines and children's rides.

Bradford Model Railway Club will be providing rides on its miniature line and there will be a chance for visitors to drive a tractor or quad bikes. Food will be available and there will be a bar.

Admission to the event, which starts both days at 10am, is £3 for adults and £1 for children.

Entertainment tomorrow will include the Ian Moorhouse musical show in the evening.

Manorlands administrator Chris Wilcock said the gathering had become a major fundraiser for the hospice and he paid tribute to the organisers.

"We give back-up where it's needed with things such as letter writing, but all the organising is done by a committee of enthusiastic local volunteers. They do a fantastic job," he said.
