Owner Tim Roberts said: "I absolutely love the idea of a north and west Norfolk Monopoly. This area of outstanding natural beauty and historic interest deserves to be immortalised in a Monopoly board and gives everyone the opportunity to support the wonderful work of The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House where I have seen first-hand the incredible work that they do."

The game will go on sale at the beginning of December. Tammy Green, senior fundraising manager at the hospice, said: "We are so excited to say we have officially passed go and north and west Norfolk will have its very own exclusive Monopoly board.

"This is a fantastic product which has been produced as a permanent reminder for locals and visitors that we are extremely lucky to share this beautiful part of the world, packed with award winning locations, attractions and beaches".

John Garrett, director of finance and fundraising said: "The sale of the Monopoly Games will provide significant funds for the hospice with all the proceeds going to provide outstanding passionate care to communities in north and west Norfolk".
