Hundreds of people visited a popular village pub for its Beers, Bikes and Bands event, raising £4,000 to help young people in need.

Combining a bike show, a beer festival and music from Thy Last Drop and SJ and the Flying Pigs, the charity fundraising day at the Burston Crown, near Diss, on Easter Sunday proved to be a great success.

More than 150 motorbikes were on show at the pub.

First time auctioneer Adam Stokes helped to push the charity auction of promises to just over £4,000 raised.

Luan Hines said: 'Our aim was to raise money to help young people in our area who need help because of life challenges they have faced.

'The wonderfully generous people who came to Burston on Sunday helped us to exceed our expectations. A big thank you goes to the small businesses of Diss and the surrounding area who were so generous in providing auction lots that helped us raise this important sum of money.'

Bev Kembery, owner of the Burston Crown, said: 'This was our busiest day ever at the Burston Crown and an event we hope to repeat. It was a great party atmosphere with a really good-natured and generous community of people.'
