A charitable couple have donated more than £250 to the James Paget University Hospital's Cardiac Fund, thanks to a successful fundraising open mic night.

Beverley and Tony Graham have both received care from the cardiac nurse service at the Gorleston hospital and wanted to give something back to show their appreciation.

They organised the open mic music event at the Albion pub, in Gorleston, during the festive period.

It proved such a success in showing off local talent that Mr Graham has said that they would definitely host another.

Mrs Graham said having the support of the cardiac nurse service had been a 'god send' in their time of need.
