The event aimed to raise as much money as possible for the Bubblebee Charity, an independent pre-school in Sproughton for children with difficulties with movement and co-ordination.

Michael Bloomfield, the society’s chairman, said it had raised more than £100,000 for local charities since it launched more than 40 years ago.
