A team of Lynn-based firefighters has given thousands of pounds to an organisation which supports their ill and injured colleagues.

Almost 200 vehicles took part in an inaugural Land Rover run from Sandringham to Holkham, via Massingham and Creake Abbey, in aid of the Firefighters’ Charity in October.

Almost £3,000 was raised on the day, which organisers are planning to stage again next year.

And further donations boosted the total which has now been given to charity bosses to just over £4,000.

The event was also supported by businesses including Adrian Flux Insurance, Barclays, Hunters Land Rover and Optima Stainless.
