Gallery: Sun shines for Ufford Bygones and Fun Day

THE sun shone and crowds turned out in force for an annual fundraiser.

The Ufford Bygones and Fun Day was more popular than ever, with 3,500 people flooding through the gates.

The event, which was held on Sunday at Crown Farm, Ufford, near Woodbridge, raised money for St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich. Attractions included a display of classic and vintage vehicles, a variety of traction engines and lots of fun and games suitable for the whole family.

Meanwhile, committee member Michael Spink put together a scene depicting different types of farming.

There was also a prize draw and live music from local bands.

Patrick Otter, chairman of the Ufford Bygones and Fun Day Committee, said the day was their most successful ever.

He said they had raised more money than in previous years but the exact total was not yet known.

“Last year we were able to give a donation of �6,000 and I certainly believe we should be in a position to match that and potentially exceed it,” he said.

Mr Otter also thanked the team of volunteers who helped on the day as well as all those who supported the event.

The Ufford Bygones and Fun Day started in 2003 and has raised �46,000 for St Elizabeth Hospice.
