14:09 07 May 2012
Classic cars of all shapes, colours and sizes took to the back roads of Norfolk today for a well-established and popular heritage run.
The fundraising rally, organised by the Broadland MG Owners’ Club which meets in Acle, is in its 23rd year.
About 170 cars, from a 1934 MG Magnette to a 1973 Corvette, took part in today’s event which started from Hunter’s Hall, Swanton Morley, near Dereham.
Participants from across Norfolk and parts of Suffolk followed a 58-mile route which went through Sennowe Park, Guist, before finishing at Holt railway station.
David Johnson, secretary of the club, said: “It is a brilliant turnout.”
Maurice Gowen, 72, from South Walsham, who was driving a 2001 MGF, said: “It is very sociable and there are a lot of interesting cars.”
The event raised just over £3,000 which will go towards Dereham Cancer Care, the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the Norfolk Churches charity.
