Half a dozen north Norfolk artists have raised more than £1,200 for East Anglia's Children's Hospices with their creative efforts.
The Smallburgh Six - Tricia Pugh, Pam Loveday, Mary Williams, Liz Sparrow, Elizabeth Purdy, and Marcia Paterson - held an open studio and artist at work event in Smallburgh Village Hall over a weekend earlier this month.
Attractions included paintings and postcards for sale, a bring and buy stall, art books and materials for sale, and a raffle.
The six women hold the event every other year and their last, in 2014, raised just over £1,000 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Spokesman Marcia Paterson said they all wanted to thank those who had supported them and shown great generosity.
She added: 'Despite the heavy showers we had lots of visitors and the atmosphere was warm and friendly.'
