Classic minis will be on show at Ipswich Waterfront after taking part in a Suffolk landmark ‘treasure hunt’ for a child sexual abuse charity on Sunday.
The Ipswich and Suffolk Mini Owners Club (ISMOC) is organising the ‘Classics on the Quay’ event for Fresh Start – New Beginnings, an Ipswich charity which provides treatment for child victims of sexual abuse.
People can still sign up to the event, which starts at Stonham Barns at 10am on Sunday. Participants will be given riddles to identify 10 Suffolk landmarks. They have to travel to as many as possible, and take a photo of each one, before finishing outside Cult Cafe along Ipswich Waterfront at 1pm.
The public display then begins and the winners will be announced. Entry costs £7 per car. At least 50 teams have signed up so far.
ISMOC founder Carl George said: “This is our first-ever mini run and we wanted to have fun and support a local charity where our donation will help make a difference.

“Once I heard about Fresh Start – New GGeginnings and the fantastic work they do, we had no hesitation on deciding to raise money for them. They are small like us, but they really do make a big difference to the 200 sexually abused children they work with.”
Patsy Johnson- Cisse, fundraising manager at Fresh Start – New Beginnings, said: “We are over the moon that Carl and the members of Ipswich and Suffolk Mini Owners club are supporting us.
