The children from Little Saints Preschool in Weeting got to sit in and explore the cab of the 45ft Daf lorry, owned by Suffolk hauliers Goldstar Transport.

The company lent its support to the preschool at this year's Weeting Steam Rally, donating the proceeds from its stall to the school's committee.

As an extra treat for its 33 pupils, Goldstar driving instructor Andy Keatley brought one of the firm's lorries to Weeting for the children to see.

Parent and committee member Helen Kilderhouse said Little Saints operates as a charity so Goldstar Transport's £96 donation, along with the money the school raised on its own stall at the steam rally, was a valuable addition to its kitty.
