About

A little bit about the London Irish Vintage Club…

The London Irish Vintage Club was formed to enable vintage enthusiasts (whether their interest lies in cars, lorries or tractors) the ability to get together and take part in the first ever vintage road run from Westminster to Greenford culminating in a display their vehicles – all this whilst having a bit of craic and ultimately raising money for a worthy cause.

The chosen charity for 2011 (and our inaugural year) was St Luke’s Hospice, Kenton.
