A generous donor has boosted the coffers of a Norfolk-based charity which supports disadvantaged communities in Cambodia.

Roger Hayes, who was until recently the president of the Norwich Circle of the Catenians Association, gave £1,500 to Support Cambodia.

The independent charity was founded by Bob and Katie Maidment in January 2015.

It supports economically and socially disadvantaged communities in north-west Cambodia.

The £1,500 was raised during My Hayes' year as club president and will pay for a tuk-tuk which will transport children, disabled by landmines, across the country for therapy.
