Local good causes are being invited to bid for cash raised at Cromer's spectacular New Year fireworks display.

Some 100 volunteers helped stage the event, including shaking donations buckets which can now be given away.

An estimated 10,000 spectators attended the display staged on the resort's iconic pier.

The fireworks are funded by Cromer Town Council ploughs half the proceeds back into the following year's event and gives the rest away.

A total of £8,000 is available from the cash pot collected at the display, which has become a 'must see' on Norfolk's January calendar.
