At the weekend (28th July) VarrsToen and driver Gary Hughes were really pleased to go to the Scotty’s Little Soldiers charity event at Norfolk Arena.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a Charity set up to support the young children who have lost parents whilst serving for the British Armed Forces.
Norfolk Arena organised the Fun drifting event which went back to what the sport is all about, going out there sideways and having a good time! Some of the UK’s top drifters were in attendance including several locals, all there for the same reason, to have fun and help raise money for this worth while cause!
The evening featured Twin Drifting battles from some of the UK’s top professional drivers. Speedway riders from Kings Lynn Stars & Young Stars along with players from Kings Lynn Town Football Club for photographs and autograph sessions. There was also displays from Norfolk 4×4 club, RC Drifting (remote controlled drift cars), open pits so everyone was able to see all the cars up close and meet the drivers, Trade stands, BBQ’s, Bouncy Castle’s for the kids and a late night bar & disco.
With a free entry and passenger riders for donations it was a brilliant event set up for a brilliant charity. 100% of the money raised went directly to the charity! A big Thanks goes to stadium owner Buster Chapman for opening up Norfolk Arena, FOR FREE, and hosting this event!
