A school has praised the 'massive boost' the £10,000 raised at North Walsham Live Aid will give to staff and pupils.
Event organiser Barry Holden and his wife Chris presented a cheque for the amount to the Clare special school in Norwich.
Mr Holden said: 'Deputy head Rebecca Wicks said the money was a massive boost to the school. It will be used to supply a sensory, interactive floor and other equipment in the refurbished sensory room.'
As reported, a Pink Floyd guitar signed by Roger Waters and Nick Mason fetched £2,000 at an auction held as part of the event, which also saw two nights of live music at North Walsham community centre on April 21/22.
The event was visited by Live Aid patron, former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett.
