Street Elite Cruiserz has organised the event at the Makro car park at Broadland Business Park, meeting at 7pm tonight (Saturday, July 20), with participants making donations to the charities.

In 2015, more than a thousand people attended a meet in honour of Mark Callf, who had been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. He was a member of the close-knit customised car community and the event helped raise money for The Big C.

Organisers of this year's meet met Norfolk Constabulary in advance to go over the details for the meet, which will include marshals to direct drivers to where they should park their cars.

And, they stressed on Facebook: "This is a static meet only, we do not arrange a second location. We do NOT tolerate anti social behaviour at our charity meets, never have and never will.
