“The feedback has been wonderful and with the support we are now planning another event for next June.”

Jac, who owns upmarket Longton valeting company Jax’s Details Co, used his contacts to amass a collection of rare Porsches, Lamborghinis, Ferraris and other super and classic cars, as well as BMW motorbikes and Ford trucks.

The event was open to all with visitors being asked to make a donation to raise money for Rosemere’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal.

There was also a a premium raffle, while Linda donated the price of every coffee sold to the proceeds.

The pair have now got plans underway for a second event for June 2018
