Sixth motor show in memory of John Toner
5:01pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
A MAN whose brother was killed while fundraising for the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) is to host his sixth motor show in aid of the charity.
Colin Toner, from Middlesbrough, has been raising money since 2007 after his brother John Toner was killed while on the last leg of a 500-mile fundraising motorcycle trip.
An air ambulance has since been dedicated to John and his name appears on the side of The Guardian Of The North aircraft.
The motor show has been held at the Dormans Club, in Middlesbrough, for the past five years and has raised more than £12,000 since it started.
The father-of-two said: "I do the shows in memory of my brother. It is a great charity, which has helped hundreds of people over the years."
The sixth motor show is taking place at the Dormans Club, Oxford Road, Middlesbrough, on September 22 where a variety of vehicles will be exhibited including vintage, sports, custom, race and rally.
Six bands will be playing rhythmic blues, jazz, classic rock and pop at the event. There will also be trade stalls, craft stalls and a bouncy castle.
Mr Toner, 52, said: "It is set to be a fantastic day and hopefully lots of people will come out to show their support."
The show runs from 10am to 5pm, and tickets are £2 for adults. Under 15s are free but must be accompanied by an adult.
There is free camping and caravanning facilities on Friday and Saturday night, email colintonersky.com to confirm a place.
