A woman from Acle celebrated receiving the cancer all clear all by hosting a fundraiser for others affected by the illness.

Claire Alden, who was previously diagnosed with breast cancer, has held a garden tea party to raise money for the Big C.

She welcomed work colleagues and friends into her home, selling tea and cakes to raise money for the charity, which supports people affected by cancer and funds research into it.

As well as organising the party, the supermarket colleague also raised funds through a charity walk around Strumpshaw Fen.

Together with colleagues from the supermarket where she works in Norwich, she presented a cheque for £652 to Steve Hearnden, a volunteer ambassador for the Big C.
