A garden party in rural north Norfolk will raise funds for two organisations with common aims of reaching out to young people.

Girlguiding Norfolk and the Samaritans are hosting the event at the Guides' Patteson Lodge activity centre, Coltishall, NR12 7JN, on Sunday June 5 from 2pm-5pm.

Party-goers will be entertained by music from Taverham Brass Band while tucking into afternoon tea and cakes.

Tickets, at £10 each (£5 for primary school-aged children), are available until May 31 from the Guides' Norfolk County Office, email:

Volunteers from both charities have previously worked together to arrange jamborees for Scouts and Guides.

Funds raised will go towards Girlguiding Norfolk's new Archive Resource Centre - the ARC - in the grounds of Patteson Lodge, and training for new Norwich branch Samaritans volunteers.
