A fundraising car cruise took place in Kettering to raise funds for a family who themselves go out of their way to help others.

James and Michelle Barrow are well-known in Kettering for their work to raise funds for Kettering General Hospital with their Kettering McQueen car, modelled on the Lightning McQueen character from the Cars films.

Despite them having to move out of their house following a massive fire last month, they still regularly attend local events such as Thrapston Charter Fair last Saturday.

On Sunday on the top of the Newlands centre car park there was a cruise for the Barrow family featuring many of the cars from the hit films.

Chris Ellingham, who took the picture above, said: “It was a fantastic event with a good turnout.”
