Wedding tombola raises money for NARS

The Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS) has received £480 from a wedding tombola.
The money was raised during the Bride: The Wedding Show at the Norfolk Showground on February 17 and 18.
NARS receives no government or NHS funding, so relies solely on the generosity of the public to maintain its life-saving service.
Diana Sims, sales director for Archant's bride portfolio, said: 'The exhibitors at Bride: The Wedding Show at Norfolk Showground had a selection of offers available including prizes and discounts.
'We wanted to give something back to a local charity. NARS was the charity of choice because Steve Maddams, who works with me on setting up the show is also a first responder in his spare time. It costs such a lot for the life-saving equipment, and NARS relies on charitable work and donations.'
