A group of carol singers have braved the wind and rain to show solidarity with those hit by the storm surge and spread some festive cheer.
Singers from Thetford Methodist Church were in good voice in Thetford town centre on Saturday with buckets at the ready for donations to the EDP's flood appeal.
Fittingly, the rain came down, but it failed to dampen the spirits of the singers, who filled the air with the strains of Silent Night, Hark the Herald Angels, While Shepherds Watch and other Christmas favourites.
Sue Webber, leader of the church choir, said the group had been touched by the plight of storm victims.
'We've all seen the terrible news in the paper and it makes you realise we still have our lovely homes, untouched, and we wanted to help those who have been affected.

'Even though Thetford isn't on the coast, we are still part of Norfolk and it's so important that we stick together in these situations,' she said.
The church has already raised £6,000 this year for Cancer Research UK and Action for Children.
