A total of £1500 has been raised to support the creation of an inclusive playground and skate park in a Norfolk town.

Christmas may have been and gone, but North Walsham Play recieved a late gift from North Walsham Roundtable totalling £1502.03.

The money was raised from the annual sleigh appeal in the run up to Christmas 2019.

Matthew Smith MBE, trustee of North Walsham Play, said: "We have really enjoyed helping Santa and his elves once again as they visited many parts of North Walsham.

"We will put the donation to very good use with regards to reaching our £185,000 fundraising target for a new skate park."
