Poignant vintage rally at The Goat, Skeyton, aids Big C

A north Norfolk family has handed over a cheque for �4,796 to Norfolk cancer charity Big C after a poignant vintage car rally.

The annual event, held at The Goat Inn, Skeyton, near Coltishall, was organised by publicans Jo and Jem Cooke, and Mrs Cooke's mother, Judie Cooper.

The popular event traditionally raises money for a number of charities but this year the family particularly wanted to support the Big C because Mrs Cooke's father Steve Cooper was diagnosed with prostate cancer earlier this year.

He lived to present the prizes at the May rally but died shortly afterwards.

The event attracted more than 400 entries and was the Goat's most successful so far.

Big C spokesman Lesley Cologne thanked the family for their efforts at a difficult time.
