When Sam Grout, owner of the Old Rock Shop Bistro in Cromer, installed his 1958 Wurlitzer juke box he decided that any profits made from its use would be donated to charity.
Break charity chiefs were taken a little by surprise when Mr Grout presented them with three iPad minis and three compact digital cameras.
Senior fundraising officer Danielle Gravestock said: 'We are absolutely delighted. It is such a generous gift and I am certain they will bring both pleasure and benefit to all the children who use them.'
The juke box gives diners at the Hamilton Road bistro a chance to listen to music from Glenn Miller to early Michael Jackson and every record played adds a little more to the charity pot.
Mr Grout said: 'We try and change the records every so often but always keep the most popular ones in the juke box.

'Customers have always enjoyed listening to the music and we often hear grandparents explaining how the juke box works to younger generations.'
He is already collecting money from the juke box for the next local charity and is keen to hear of a local charity which needs a particular piece of equipment.
