Businesses are holding fundraising day to raise money for a cancer charity.

Traders in the Victoria Arcade in Great Yarmouth are holding an activity day in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The shops taking part are Subway, Finishing Touches, USA Nails, Woodcraft, Sowchic, Steve's Sweets and the Barber shop.

The event is taking place on Monday, May 29 from 1-4pm and is being organised by Roy Singfield.

The charity was founded in 1911 as the Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer, by Douglas Macmillan following the death of his father from the disease.
