The first Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House Car Show and Family Fun Day has been hailed a big success.

An array of vehicles and family activities were held last Sunday at Sandringham which was attended by more than 3,000 and raised almost £10,000 for the Hillington-based hospice. 

More than 120 owners of classic, modified and limited edition cars brought their pride and joy vehicles to the event. West Norfolk Mayor Nick Daubney judged the car show competition. 

As well as vehicles there were stalls, refreshments and family activities. 

Jessica Walker, hospice community fundraiser, thanked everyone for their support and said: “We would like to thank everyone who attended our first car show and family fun day. 

“We had a great day and are overwhelmed by the support of the local community. 

“The money raised from this event will go towards helping us to continue to provide the care and support to people (and their families) in the local community living with life-shortening illnesses.”

She said the hospice’s fundraising team is already planning next year’s event.
