A fundraiser event at a Gorleston pub in aid of a paralysed woman has raised more than £5,800.
The landlady at the Mariner's Compass, Gemma Searby, held a charity day to raise money in support of Kerry Ann Philpott, 32 and who fell from a top floor window four years ago and was left paralysed.
The fun event, held on June 15, had children's entertainment, live music, a barbecue, raffle, auction and a bouncy castle.
It raised funds to buy a MOTOmed machine which is used to build up muscle strength in legs.
Ms Searby said: 'We raised £5,859.06.

'We have started up a fund also for anyone locally in similar situations to Kerry. If they have had a life changing accident and need help funding things like Kerry did we want them to get in touch.
'The day was amazing and had such a community feel and everyone had lots of fun.'
