Organised by the Cambs & District Looney Club, the annual event raised over £1,304.27 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

“Realistically we are a drinking club who just like to party and whose interest happens to be motorbikes,” said chairman Neill Magee.

He added: “We raised £750 last year for the East Anglain Air Ambulance, and to have exceeded that amount is just fantastic.”

The band for the evening, ‘Hooker’, waived their performance fee of £500 which went into the charity pot.

“This is a first time for me. I was on my own so I thought I’d get on my Harley, ride to Littleport and join in the fun with other like-minded people,” said Roger from Norwich, who enjoys restoring bikes.

This year’s theme was the colour purple - the signature colour of the East Anglian Children’s Hospices charity.
