A couple from Snettisham remembered young patients at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital while celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary.

Ian and Shirley Goddard held a party in Snettisham Salvation Army Hall in October to mark their milestone anniversary and raised £700 through donations instead of presents.

Thanks to their generosity, patients in the Hospital's children's ward will now be able to enjoy watching films on a number of portable dvd players. They are also planning to purchase a bench for Snettisham Primary School.

Retired sub-postmaster Mr Goddard said: Mr Goddard said: 'We are really pleased to be able to support the hospital and know that the DVD players will be put to a good use.'

'We would like to thank everyone who attended the party and supported the fundraising along with Curry's in King's Lynn.'
