Three tree surgeons have volunteered to do £600 worth of work at a small cancer charity.
The Norse Group arborists were given paid leave to use their skills at Star Throwers charity in Wymondham.
Martin Pigg, Paul Kaufmann-Ward and Ed Savage felled two trees that were diseased and removed the deadwood from others that line the entrance to the cancer support charity.
Victoria Pigg, assistant manager said: 'We are very grateful for the work that has been completed and the generosity of NORSE, this work would have cost the charity over £600.
'It costs £350 per day to run our cancer support centre where we support approximately eight-10 people everyday that are affected by cancer.
