A classic sports car is to be raffled as part of efforts to raise £4.8m to restore a historic Worcestershire house.

The National Trust took over management of Croome Court in 2007 and said it hoped to restore it "back to its Georgian splendour".

The Morgan Motor Company donated the car and tickets are being sold on open days at the home.

The house is a tourist attraction after several decades in private hands.

The house, the former home of the Earls of Coventry, was bought by Croome Heritage Trust in 2007.

The National Trust said essential repairs included restoring all 85 windows and repairing staircases, guttering and external masonry.

The raffle will be held next year.
