A historic church is a step closer to being able to complete improvement work after hosting a barbecue fundraiser.
St Margaret Starston Church in Harleston hosted the event on Sunday June 24 and raised £179 for funds towards the church.
Earlier that weekend, a collection was held by the Royal Air Force Association and the Royal British Legion at Co-op Harleston. This was able to raise £341,59 for both causes.
Herbert Websdell and partner Julie Websdell are out raising money around the town most weekends.
Mr Websdell said: 'We are always trying to raise money locally and for local courses.
