A city charity ball raised hundreds of pounds which will help cancer patients.
The evening event at the Mercure Norwich Hotel on Boundary Road made £600 which will go towards the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) breast cancer resource fund.
Money from the fund pays for services including travel arrangements for cancer sufferers or essential items including specially designed underwear.
It will only help people cared for at the NNUH.
The fundraiser was organised by Valerie Thorne, from Hellesdon, who has raised money for different charities since 2010 at yearly charity balls at the Mercure Norwich Hotel.

She said: 'It was a brilliant night. I wanted to raise money for the NNUH breast cancer care resource fund because I have had a couple of scares and my friend recently died from cancer. I'm really pleased with the fundraiser and the hospital staff were over the moon.'
