Two mid Norfolk churches have received a boost to their repair funds thanks to an evening of music.
St Mary's at Carleton Forehoe, near Wymondham, has been victim of lead thefts from the roof, break-ins and criminal damage.
Nearby St Peter and St Paul at Barnham Broom is raising funds for repairs to both the church and restoration of its bells.

Many people contributed to the success of the evening, none more so than Christine and Ivan Revell-Burrows who rigged up a portable generator for lighting and electronic music equipment.
With the sale of a picture painted by local artist and choir member Lynn Rutherford, admission and a raffle, nearly £1,000 was raised to be split between the two churches.
