A big band concert at the Memorial Hall in Dereham will help raise money for a vital piece of equipment for people suffering from liver disease.
The Norfolk & Norwich Liver Group is raising money for a portable fibroscan, a liver scanner which costs around £50,000, for use at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital.
The charity has already purchased two fibroscans which are in constant use and, in many cases, negate the need for patients to have dangerous protracted liver biopsies.
To support the funds Dereham Mayor Phillip Duigan is holding an Easter concert on Saturday, April 15 with the Jonathan Wyatt Big Band.
They will play music from 1940s rat pack shows through to the present day.
