Downham Market Lionesses presented a £140 cheque to the Downham Market Girl Guiding group after they asked for the local community's support in helping refurbish their hut.

Margaret Fox, Lioness president, said: "Members had heard about their fundraising efforts and decided to donate money raised from a stall at the Water Festival and a recent coffee morning.

"It was rewarding to see the smiles on all their faces and I hope they are soon able to complete the renovations."
