A fundraising project to support an Admiral nurse in the region has been given a £1,000 boost by the Rotary Club of Holt and District.

The club presented a cheque to Dementia UK at The Dales Hotel in Upper Sheringham. The money will support the work of the specialist nurse based at Holt Medical Practice, helping those with dementia who live at home.

Rotarian Greg Cooper, who chairs the Holt Dementia Friendly Community Steering Group, said: 'The challenges posed by dementia in an area with a high proportion of elderly people must not be underestimated.

'The steering group wishes to thank all the fundraising organisations involved and looks forward to working with the new Admiral nurse as its members seek to further increase the support services already available.'

Other fundraising partners included North Norfolk Rotary, Fakenham Rotary, CT Baker Group Ltd, Friends of Kelling Hospital and Kelling Hospital Appeal.
