A concert is set to take place to raise funds for people who are still trying to rebuild their lives after a devastating earthquake hit Nepal two years ago.

Local band, The Walkers Brothers, will perform at St Martin's Church in Cromer in a concert that will include songs from the 1960s and 70s.

All money raised will go to the National Mission Commission of Nepal, which has been helping to rebuild people's homes since the earthquake as well as support people in the capital city's slums.

Nepal was hit by the deadly earthquake on April 25, 2015. Millions were left homeless and nearly 9,000 were killed. Survivors had to build crude shelters from the rubble of their homes and two years on, many of them remain homeless.

The concert will take place at 7.30pm on Saturday April 1. Tickets cost £10, including refreshments, and are available from Upstairs Downstairs, Church Street or Curtis' Garage, Cromer Rd.
