Members of the public are invited to take part in a bingo night to help raise money for a hospital appeal.

The Peddars Inn, on The Street, Sporle, near Swaffham, will host the event tomorrow in a bid to help the Queen Elizabeth Hospital's Excel Appeal.

Attendees can pay £5 for a book of 12 games or play the cash game at £1 per card.

The total amount of funds raised will be split between the winner of the cash game and the Excel Appeal.

The appeal, which is supported by the EDP, aims to raise £50,000 to help buy specialist care equipment which would improve the treatment and comfort of elderly people in hospital.
