More than £440 was raised for the Jenny Lind Children's Hospital during a Ska and Reggae night.

The event was held on Saturday, January 20 at The Stanley in Norwich.

DJs and artists performed during the night to raise as much money as possible.

John O Shea, organiser of the event, said: 'I would like to thank each and every one for coming to the Ska and Reggae event. A big thank you to The Stanley for letting me put this event on and for taking part in doing the raffle and other things that they put on in the week coming up to the event. And thank you to all the DJs and artists that performed during the night. We had a full house on the night and lots of people showing their love for the Jenny Lind.'
