Members of a Norfolk youth band received a boost from the Rotary Club of Diss and District to help pay for a forthcoming trip to the Far East.
South Norfolk Youth Symphonic Band received �500 contribution from the club at a lunch on Tuesday, August 7.
Maddy Anderson, now studying at Bristol University, and Hannah Strode, who is embarking on a gap year are both active members of the band. They were accompanied by SNYSB director and conductor Mike Booty.
