A popular fundraising event has surpassed expectations and raised more than £7,000 for charity.

On Sunday, May 6, The Burston Crown, near Diss held its second annual Beer, Bikes and Bands event.

Attracting more than 400 bikers and 1000 visitors, the event which was held for the first time in 2017, featured a mini beer festival, bike rally and live music.

Aiming to beat the previous year’s fundraising efforts of £4,500, the event, held in aid of the children’s mental health and wellbeing organisation Nature, Nurture, surpassed expectations raising a total of £7,200.

Event organiser, Lou Hines said: “We hoped that this year would be bigger than last year and it was; more bikes, more people and more money.”

Bev Kemberey, owner of the Burston Crown added: “It was such a busy day, I was close to tears when I eventually stepped outside to see the lovely line up of bikes and all the lovely generous people having fun in the sun.”
