Sotterley Country Fair returned for the third year at the weekend, with a record-breaking turnout and amounts raised.

The event, held at Sotterley Hall, on Sunday, June 25, was attended by 2,500 people. Part of the proceeds, £9,500, will be split between East Coast Hospice, East Anglia's Children's Hospices, Starthrowers, Chedgrave MS Centre and Waveney 1st Responders. The remaining £1,500 is to be shared between charities present on the day, including Help for Heroes and Dogs Trust.

Rachel Bunn, event organiser, said: 'The support has been fantastic, people came from all over the east to enjoy a good family day out.'

'This is not a commercial enterprise – all the money made goes back to the local charities. It wouldn't be able to happen without the support of the Sotterley Estate. I want to thank the Barne family who kindly let us have the land for the weekend.'
