Laang vintage rally raising money for palliative care

ALMOST perfect weather has helped the 15th annual ​Laang ​Vintage ​Engine ​R​ally​ be an outstanding success.​

Organiser Brian​ Cockayne said the two-day rally was started as a fund-raiser.

​"We ​had a great day ​on Saturday and Sunday looks like it's going to be even better," he said on Sunday morning.

​"We've got 60 -plus ​tractor​s involved in the  tractor pull​, almost 20 vintage trucks ​on display and heaps ​of ​old vintage engine​s​ working."

​Mr Cockayne said the event at Coulahans Road ​was established to raise money after a family member died of cancer​.

"We usually raise somewhere between $3000 and $5000 for the palliative care unit. It's a great cause," he said.

​"People see to come for a couple of hours, have a good look around and then wander off. It's a great family day –  a chance to step back in time. We've got exhibitors from Mildura, Gippsland and heaps from Geelong," the organiser said.
