A GoFundMe appeal on behalf of Barnardos is being supported by the organisers of the annual Cannonball supercar touring event which was due to raise funds for the charity, writes Brian Byrne.

The event, due to take place this passed weekend, was cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions.

In normal circumstances over the last 12 years, it included a convoy of top mark cars including McLaren, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, Maserati, Rolls Royce and Bentley and free family festivals all over the country.
