Mum and son reach £4,000 charity target in memory of football-mad North Walsham dad
Mum and son Jackie and Nathan Hill (pictured) have reached their £4,000 fundraising target in aid of the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK.
The pair organised a fun day at North Walsham Town Football Club last month in memory of husband and dad Mark Hill who died unexpectedly, aged 55, in September last year.
Mr Hill had been a staunch supporter of Norwich City FC and had run boys' teams in North Walsham for a number of years.
Mrs Hill and Nathan topped up the £3,500 raised at their fun day by selling surplus items from it at the town's annual Fun Day, held recently on the Memorial Park.
The Hills' fun day included a match between a North Walsham side and a team from Lincoln University where Nathan, 21, has just graduated with a 2i in journalism.

The event also included an auction of football memorabilia.
