Lymington Italia Festival raised £1,200 for Oakhaven Hospice

The annual Lymington Italia Festival in aid of Oakhaven Hospice, which is organised and promoted by us, attracted over 10,000 visitors this year and raised £1,200.

The one day event on July 3rd began at 10am when 50 classic Ferrari owners from the Wessex Ferrari Owners’ Club met with their beloved vehicles at Lymington’s Yacht Haven.

These iconic sports cars then departed in convoy to the centre of town where they were parked for people to admire.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the road, an Italian food market offered visitors an authentic taste of Italy.

Our founder Jack Manley said afterwards: “It was a brilliant day; the sun came out; the people came out; the cars looked amazing; the food tasted great; and we raised money for a fantastic cause.”
