A Norfolk town has been able to order a defibrillator after a community group donation.

Roydon Parish Council was presented with a cheque for £100 from the Diss Waveney Rotary Club.

The money was collected as part of the club's Santa Sleigh ride that it took around the streets of Roydon during the run up to Christmas last year.

Chairman of Roydon Parish Council, Paul Curson, was presented with the cheque by president of the Rotary Club Pat Mordey.

He said: 'We have now been able to order the defibrillator which will be installed at the village hall.

Roydon Parish Council also received a grant from South Norfolk Council to help purchase the life-saving equipment.
