Residents of a village have raised £600 for a hospital appeal.

The money was handed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn by the Iles-Hunt family, which runs the Peddars Inn in Sporle.

It followed two fundraising events held at the inn last month to raise money for the hospital's Excel Appeal, which aims to suport frail, vulnerable, and older patients.

The events were bingo and quiz nights, while the Iles-Hunt family also gathered funds through their Christmas lights display in the garden outside the pub.

Elizabeth Iles-Hunt said: 'We raise lots throughout the year and it is great to support another local charity.'
