A group of morris dancers have put their hobby to good use, by raising money for a charitable cause.

Members of Rumburgh Morris have made a donation of £120 to Artbox - a not-for-profit organisation which supports adults with special needs in the Waveney area.

The donation came from money collected by the group during their summer season of morris dancing.

Ran by Helen Murray, Artbox puts on art sessions for people with special educational needs at a studio at The House on the Hill in Chediston, with the aim of encouraging art as an activity to benefit mental health.

Meanwhile, the Rumburgh-based dancing group are eagerly looking for new members - both dancers and musicians
