Two radio presenters have surprised a Norfolk charity with a cheque for almost £80,000.

Heidi Secker and Dave Taylor, who present Heart East Anglia's breakfast show, arranged to film Musical Keys receiving a cheque of £32,479 that the charity had applied for.

What the charity did not know was the cheque would in fact be for £79,000.

Musical Keys offers more than 5,000 places to disabled people in Norfolk, providing all ages with access to music and the arts.

The money raised by Heart East Anglia and Global's Make Some Noise will fund two projects involving weekly and fortnightly sessions in six locations, for the next two years.
