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.

Mr Payne, a musician with 30 years experience, lives in Sheringham and became aware of the Friends through the a fund-raising comedy night.

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