Two neighbours' Christmas lights display have raised more than £1,600 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Susan Gooding-Lewis and Margaret Diggle, who live on Park Lane in Downham Market, raised the money through donations from their show-stopping festive lights.
The bright display spread cheer in the community last month and was a popular drive-by location for people in the local area.
The neighbours have been fundraising for the EAAA for around seven years and this year saw them raise £1,626 with the support of Knicat Bakery on Railway Road and Digglenet.
Mrs Gooding-Lewis said: "We would like to thank everyone who kindly donated this amazing amount, it's been very hard for everyone last year and looks like hard times ahead but people still gave generously ."
