Hop onboard an antique steam engine at the Gibraltar Steam Up next weekend for some old-fashioned fun in aid of Motor Neurone Disease.

On Saturday May 13 Gibraltar Castle pub, in Harpenden, will be supporting a day of fundraising alongside the Hertfordshire Steam Engine Preservation Society.

The day will be raising money for MNDA, commemorating the passing of a family friend and fellow steam engine preservationist.

Event organiser, Megan Irvine, said: “There will be a model railway which will be giving rides for free, with 100 percent of [the day’s] proceeds going to the Motor Neurone Disease Association.”

“Also 100 per cent of the proceeds from the raffle and cake sale will be donated to MNDA, plus any other donations from the bar and very generous people.”

There will be activities for the whole family to enjoy including the pub barbecue, a cake sale, raffle, pottery painting and an exhibition of full size and miniature steam engines.
