A rock concert and First World War exhibition helped raise nearly £2,000 to repair a historic church roof.
The two events for St Peter and St Paul's Church, Knapton, raised £1,800.
Money is needed to restore the building's 15th century double hammer-beam roof with 138 carved and painted angels.
The total cost of repairs is £260,000 and so far £7,000 has been raised and £206,000 has been earmarked through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
A rock concert starring the Rt Rev Jonathan Meyrick, the Bishop of Lynn, was staged.
