A pub near Dereham is hosting a 12-hour charity fundraiser in memory of a young man who died of cancer.

The Lodge in North Tuddenham will be holding #FREDFEST in aid of 'It's On The Ball' testicular cancer in memory of local man Fred Riseborough.

Fred was 24 when he died of germ cell cancer, which causes testicular cancer.

There will be live music along with an outdoor disco and free children's entertainment this Saturday, July 6.

Victoria Hunt, owner at The Lodge said: "Fred was a young man of just 24 who lived locally, was a member of the young farmers, a customer of the lodge and worked for a company within North Tuddenham when he unfortunately lost his fight to cancer.
