Sun shines for Norfolk ploughing fundraiser
Ploughing enthusiasts enjoyed blue skies and sunshine as hundreds of pounds were raised for a Norfolk charity.
Norfolk Ploughing Society held its annual ploughing day at Robert Carter's Drayton Farms at Hall Lane, Norwich, yesterday.
The event was attended by 62 ploughmen and raised �1,000 for Norfolk and Waveney Prostate Cancer Support Group.
It marked the last fundraising event of the year in aid of the group's chosen charity after 12 months of money-raising activities.
The final figure raised will be announced at the society's annual general meeting in March.

Jane Raynes, the society's secretary, said: 'We selected Norfolk and Waveney Prostate Cancer's support group because we are mainly a male-dominated club and we wanted something that was for our members.
'Men don't talk about it and although they don't talk about it, if we can help someone down the line then that's a good thing.
