It was all aboard a Norfolk Broads Mississippi boat as fundraisers remembered a friend and boosted the coffers for Cromer Hospital patients.

The event in aid of the Friends of Cromer Hospital, which is called the David Northway Special, is held annually in memory of Mr Northway, who died in 2013.

He was a popular north Norfolk publican and hotelier and ran the Overstrand Cliff Top Café for 20 years.

His wife Mary, chairman of the Friends of Cromer Hospital, said she was delighted with the turnout, adding: 'The monies raised so far will benefit the hospital and patients in providing additional equipment and amenities. To be able to do this while remembering David, with family and friends, is an added bonus.'

Over £4,300 has been raised so far this year by the Friends, the next event is the Grand Draw Raffle on December 18. Tickets are on sale in the Cromer Hospital foyer.
