A cross-county drive in an early Austin seven has raised more than £8,000.

Wroxham Bure Valley Rotary Club recently raised £8,600 for The Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) after taking on the challenge in the classic car.

Members Robin Baines and Mike Hammond, with a support team of club members, undertook the journey from Lowestoft to the most westerly point in Wales and back over the space of a weekend.

The cause is close to both of their hearts, with the pair having had family members affected by the incurable disease.

Their cheque presentation to Martin Chubbock, chair of the Norfolk branch of MNDA, took place at a recent club meeting.

As well as undergoing fundraising activities, the club is hoping that residents are enjoying the purple crocuses dotted around the villages.

The floral display is part of their long-term Purple for Polio campaign, aimed at the eradication of polio worldwide.

The club's activities are not set to slow down as spring approaches; they will be managing the entrance at the Strumpshaw Steam Fair on May 25, 26, and 27.

The club welcomes supporters to contribute to their charitable initiatives.

This can be done through the Broadland Council Lottery Scheme by selecting Wroxham Bure Valley Rotary Club as their chosen cause.
