A concert of organ music classics has raised some “notes” for the North Walsham War Memorial Hospital Friends.

The event, staged at the town's parish church, saw Jon Payne play a programme of music.

It ranged from Handel's Water Music to the Eurovision theme tune, Charpentier's Te Deum, and raised £150 which has been split between the church and the Friends.

Friends chairman Keith Jarvis said: "We really appreciate it when people hold fund-raising events for us.

It shows the support the hospital and its Friends have, and how word is spreading about the work we do."
