A vehicle club has presented more than £12,000 to local charities.

The National Vintage Tractor and Engine Club East Anglia Group presented cheques to three organisations at its recent AGM.

An amazing £9,000 was presented to BREAK, a charity from Norwich that offers respite care to terminally ill people and their families.

The money was raised at the 37th Stradsett Park Vintage Rally which was held at Stradsett Park. Senior fundraising office Sarah Bunn, who collected the cheque on behalf of BREAK, was delighted and surprised at the amount.

The next donation was for £1,439.00 to St Mary’s Church at Stradsett, which will be used for repairs. This donation was made up of £354 from the Working Weekend held at Oak Farm, Stradsett, £85 from a raffle and £1,000 from the Stradsett Rally.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance also received a cheque for £1,603. The money was half the proceeds from the raffle, as well as all the proceeds from the Vintage Tractor Road Run held at Walpole Highway.
