Organisers of the Little Gransden Air and Car Show were flying high on Friday night after handing over thousands of pounds to Children in Need.

Celebrating its silver anniversary this year, the event has been raising money for the appeal since its first display and this year was no different.

Event co-organiser, David Poile said: “It is nice anytime that we are able to give money to Children in Need and, over the last 25 years, we have been able to donate £350,000.”

In total this year’s event raised £14,300 which was presented to Pudsey Bear on Friday night at Stadium MK, in Milton Keynes.

This year’s money was even more special for Mr Poile and land owners John and Mark Jefferies as it was dedicated in the memory of organising team member Adrian
