Two directors at a Norfolk construction company have raised more than £15,000 for a cancer charity after embarking on an 1,800-mile European road trip.

Jason Ramsey and Lewis Nicholas, commercial and production directors at Bateman Groundworks in Little Plumstead, themed their five-day drive through the Pyrenees and Spain around sci-fi classic Back to the Future.

Dressed as Marty McFly and Doc Brown in a customised 10-year-old BMW Z4, Mr Ramsey and Mr Nicholas joined 24 other cars on the eighth Keyline international rally in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.

They collected £10,000 in sponsorship, with another £5,000 contributed by Bateman Groundworks.

Mr Ramsey said: “Our 163-strong workforce is mostly male so Prostate Cancer UK felt especially relevant. Money raised by the rally will help fund vital research into tests, treatments and its causes.”
