A selection of weird and 
wonderful vehicles were on display at the White Horse Inn in Wroxton for charity.

The event, held on September 5, raised funds for Medical 
Detection Dogs, which trains the animals to help people with diabetes or to even detect cancer.

Landlord Peter Thornhill has been doing the event for the last few years, and despite a drop in the number of people who paid a visit to the village this year he said the event was still an enjoyable one,

He said: “The day went really well and the charity enjoyed the day so we are all pleased with how it went.

“There was about 20-25 vehicles on display including a Stanley Car from the 1910s which runs entirely on steam.

“Medical Detection Dogs is a local organisation so we felt it was important to raise 
awareness of the work they do. From our point of view though we all had a good time.”

As well as the selection of vehicles on display outside the pub and in its car park there was also a barbecue for those who attended.

Medical Detection Dogs is based in Milton Keynes and work in partnership with researchers NHS Trusts and Universities. Their aim is to help train specialist dogs to detect the odour in human disease.

Their medical alert 
assistance dogs are trained to help individuals who manage complex medical conditions on a day to day basis.

Their dogs are then taught to identify the odour changes that are associated with certain medical events.
