Dig deep for Tin Lizzie

Larry Riches, former owner of Lintek, is busy fundraising for charity with a forthcoming attempt to drive a 101-year-old Ford Model T from Gibraltar Point in Lincolnshire to Gibraltar, a journey of almost 2000 miles through France and Spain. He will be accompanied by his wife Christine, and by Ralph Kemp and Margaret Sowerby. They are hoping to raise more than £7500 for Cancer Relief.

The team will also be offering voluntary donation rides in the 1923 Ford Model T after arriving in Gibraltar, which is expected to be on or around the 6 May. Their progress will be tracked on the Cancer Relief social media platforms for arrival times.

Riches said: “In the 1920s, half of the cars on the road were Ford Model Ts. This car really put the world on wheels – more than 25 million were manufactured between 1908 and 1926, and we are hoping our vehicle will be on public display in Casemates Square on 8 May.
