A mid-Norfolk community has rallied round to support a travel firm’s charity appeal.

Premier Travel in Dereham collected more than 80 chocolate treats in its first Easter appeal for local families in need.

Staff at the firm were overwhelmed by donations from customers, businesses and organisations in the town following the appeal for Easter treats.

Jo Peacock, branch manager, said: “Our first ever Easter appeal was an incredible success. The whole community rallied round to help boost our collection – thanks to everyone who donated. The contributions were greatly received by the food bank and helped to make Easter really special for many families in need.”

The goodies were donated to Mid Norfolk Food Bank to distribute to local people in crisis over Easter.

This year was the first Easter appeal organised by the firm, and they now plan to make it a regular campaign following its success.
