MORE than 200 cars of all shapes, sizes and vintages are sure to delight petrol heads of all ages at the Perth Motorplex next Sunday, February 19.

The Rotary Club of Kwinana will hold its first Show and Shine car extravaganza to raise funds for the Children’s Leukaemia Cancer Research Foundation.

“Motoring enthusiasts of Perth, we have got a special event for you,” event co-ordinator Mike Metcalf said.

“The cars on display will include veterans to new, quirky to hot, hot, hot, two wheels, three wheels, trucks and more. They will all be shining and the owners are looking forward to showing off their pride and joy.”

There will also be market stalls, activities for children, car boot sales and automotive parts for sale.

Australia has one of the highest incidences of childhood cancer worldwide, and one in 500 Australian children will develop a cancer before 15 years of age.

“That’s 600 Australian children diagnosed every year which is why this is such a great cause to support,” he said.

Exhibitors entry 8am to 10am, public 10am to 4pm, cost $10 per person, free for children under 12.

Mr Metcalf said the Rotary Club of Kwinana was a very busy, rapidly growing group, dedicated to helping local and international causes.

“We are a very passionate bunch when it comes to supporting our local community and those who need it most,” he said. “Our activities include donations and help to local schools, care giving church groups, and other community help groups.”

The club aims to hold Show and Shine annually.
