Celebrities including Love Island's Jack Fowler and Norwich City legend Darren Huckerby took part in the day at Fakenham Town Football Club to raise money to support Lewis Atkins, from Dereham, who has been diagnosed with cancer for a fourth time.

It was organised by HelpDeleteCancer FC and saw 850 people attend to watch two different games.

A total of £4,900 was raised on the day, meaning £7,200 has been raised overall.

The money will go towards helping Lewis and his family while he is undergoing treatment.
