Charity quiz fun helped raise £2,500 for a five-year-old cerebral palsy sufferer who needs a £15,000 wheelchair to boost her independence.

A fundraiser was put on by Holt Farmers Club and also raised £500 for the Holt Youth Project on Old Station Way, Holt.

The £2,500 will go towards a new motorised off-road wheelchair for Edith Creasey, from Sheringham.

Her family launched the appeal to raise the £15,000 this year.

Charlie Mack, a member of Holt Farmers Club, organised the event with local farmers. It was sponsored by Brown & Co where Charlie Mack works.

As well as the quiz, there was an auction of promises and raffle.

Mr Mack said: 'To raise such a large amount of money was fantastic. Edith is a lovely little girl and will really benefit from the purchase of the new chair.'
