NSPCC charity lunch success in Downham Market
Supporters of the NSPCC enjoyed a tasty way of raising money for the charity in Downham Market.
Members and friends of the branch attended a special lunchtime event held at the town's Castle Hotel which raised more than �700 for charity.
Previous fundraising lunches have been held by the branch during the autumn, but for the second year it was decided to make the most of spring.
'It was a really nice event and people are so generous in their donations for the raffle which raised a lot of money,' said Shiona Hitchens, Downham branch representative in the West Norfolk branch of the charity.
Kate Shipp, of Elizabeth's the Florist in Downham, was the guest speaker for the event which attracted more than 100 people.
Money raised from the event, �754, will be given to the Childline appeal to raise �50m to expand and promote the service and the NSPCC helpline.
