It was a day to remember at Victor Seymour Primary School as more than 1000 people gathered for its annual car show.

Classic cars and bikes covered the Carshalton school grounds and despite some less than favourable weather, head teacher Helen Matt said it was a wonderful day.

"The fantastic range of vehicles, exciting stalls and lively attractions to entertain all ages brought many visitors to our school," she said.

"I am very grateful to our whole school community for supporting this year’s event and to those visitors who came and joined us.

"It is because of these fundraising occasions that we are able to provide the children at Victor Seymour with exciting learning opportunities, like learning to play the steel pans or creating a sensory room."

That isn't all the school will be getting though.

Because of the amount of money raised from the day, the students will be going on a horse and carriage ride to celebrate the royal wedding.

Co-chairwoman of Victor Seymour PTA, Michelle Bench, said it was one of the best events to date.

"As usual the rides and games were a big hit with the families and this years BBQ went down an absolute storm," she said.

"We are so grateful to this years sponsor, Carshalton estate agents Andrews.

"One very lucky student won the fabulous bike they were giving away, as he was the closest guess for the number of balloons they had packed into their car.

"We don't have a final fundraising total just yet but we're confident that, despite the weather, the event did better than ever before."
