Norfolk Military Vehicles Group gives charity cash to Gurkha Welfare Trust

Military vehicle fans handed over charity cash to the Gurkha Welfare Trust during their visit to the North Norfolk Railway 1940s weekend.

The Norfolk Military Vehicles Group has 120 members who attend up to 30 shows a year with their collection of cars, trucks and motorcycles from the second world war to the modern day.

Thirty of them were at the 1940s, based at Holt station, and handed over �200 to the Gurkha Welfare trust during the weekend.

Publicity officer Charles Warren, who made the presentation to trust chairman for the East Anglia North area Col Gordon Lane, said the group gave away up to �600 a year to good causes from fuel expenses given by show organisers, as well as collecting up to �6,000 for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Last year the group, formed in 1977, helped charities ranging from the Royal Air Forces Association to the Nancy Oldfield Trust.
