Baby turtles are helping to raise money for a Dereham charity.

Ninety-five-year-old Rose Stanyon has knitted more than 60 turtles to support Dereham Cancer Care.

She made them at the charity's knit and natter group. All turtles are available at Dereham Cancer Care and at the charity's next coffee morning for £1. Easter egg chicks will also be on sale.

Dereham Cancer Care will be holding an Easter-themed coffee morning and raffle at the Moving on Project Centre on Tuesday, from 10.30am.

There will be live music. Everyone welcome. Entry is £2 and includes coffee and cake. Free entry for children.
