A child bereavement charity has received a cash boost thanks to fundraising Freemasons.
The Bishop Herbert Lodge, which is based in Drayton and part of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Norfolk, donated £5,650 to Norfolk-based Nelson's Journey.
All the money was raised over the past year at lodge meetings and social functions.
Nelson's Journey, which helps hundreds of children who have lost loved ones, was chosen as the lodge's charity of the year by Worshipful Master Mark Turner.
Mr Turner, from Caistor St Edmund, chose the worthy cause so 'other children can receive the support which was missing from his early life'.
