A Norwich restaurant hopes to give 24 people a free three-course Christmas meal this year - but it needs your help first.

Portuguese eatery Jorge's, on Orford Yard, is looking for suggestions for a charity or organisation in Norwich which supports people affected by loneliness that can benefit from the event.

The restaurant also plans to provide its diners with gifts and cards, which they hope will be donated by the community, from local businesses to schools.

Restaurant owners Eleanor and Jorge Santos moved back to Norwich - Mrs Santos' home town - from Portugal three years ago.

While living in Portugal, they set up a #givingbacktothelocalcommunity programme, which they now hope to bring to Norwich. The pair opened Jorge's almost one year ago.
