More than 3,500 people attended the fourth Sotterley Country Fair on Sunday.
The event included a range of family entertainment with a fun dog show, main ring activities, the chance to have a go at archery and clay shooting, classic cars, steam engines, local music and a range of craft stalls.
This year’s event supported a range of local charities including East Coast Hospice, Suffolk Lowland Search and rescue and Chedgrave MS centre.
The event is held annually in memory of Sally Bunn, who lived with multiple sclerosis (MS) for many years. Her family started the event with the support of the Barne family who own the estate.
Sally’s daughter Rachel Bunn said she was “overwhelmed” with the support this year, with the event raising more than £11,500 with money still coming in.
