A Norfolk business has presented a cheque to a Grand National winning jockey in support of his cancer charity.
The equestrian clothing company, Tuffa Footwear, has donated £1,000 to national winning jockey Bob Champion.
The family-owned shoe business in Ovington donated the money in support of the Bob Champion Cancer Trust.
The company started raising money in January, donating £5 for every pair of boots that it sold as a part of its Every Pair Counts campaign.
Bob Champion Cancer Trust was Tuffa's chosen charity for 2017 leading to the donation presented by Michelle Girling, founder of Tuffa Footwear, at the Olympia International Horse Show.
