A collection for the Norfolk and Lowestoft Flood Appeal and Philippines appeal will be held in a north Norfolk village during a Nativity pageant this weekend.
The live re-enactment of the Christmas story will be held in Church Street, Gimingham, on Sunday, December 22 from 4pm.
The road will be closed off on that day between 4pm and 6pm.
Anyone who wants to get involved should call Roger Burford on 01263 720629.
Mr Burford said: “It is important in this day and age to remind people why we celebrate Christmas. It gives people the chance to step away from the buying, eating and drinking.”
A fund-raising concert and disco will be taking place at The Talk, Oak Street, Norwich, this Sunday between 8pm-2am.
Owners of The Talk provided the larger room of the venue for free.
The event has been arranged by sound technician Steve Kay, 53, whose Walcott home and garden was damaged in the floods.
He is temporarily living in Norwich and described the experience as “frightening” as his home is 10 feet from the seawall.
“The garden has been wiped out. My oil tank was thrown across the garden and my concrete wall was ripped to shreds,” he added.
Anyone interested in performing should call Mr Kay on 07771 692935.
Entrance fee is £5 and the concert is for people aged 18 or over.
The Norwich Community Choir will be singing in the Poacher’s Pocket pub, Walcott Road, Bacton, at 4pm on Sunday December 29.
Before that the choir members will sing around Walcott from 2.30pm.
The performance is free to watch but a bucket collection will be done for flood victims in Walcott.
