The British Red Cross is calling on people to help raise even more this year by donating their unwanted items to their local shop.

This comes after the charity experienced one of its most demanding years for humanitarian support in the UK since World War Two.

The charity found that people in Norfolk primarily bought home decoration, with £41,884 worth bought in the past year, and furniture and ladies tops following closely behind.

Paul Thompson, Director of Retail at British Red Cross, said: 'We would like to thank the people of Norfolk for their continued support and generous donations to our shops over the past year.'
