When a supermarket staff member came up with the bright idea of a community book stall, few thought it would be so successful.
But within a short time, customers, as well as residents surrounding Stalham Tesco were popping in to browse through a variety of donated books.
Five years on, the book stall, created by Carole Rodwell, has raised more than £30,400 which will be distributed to three charities; The British Heart Foundation, Diabetes UK and Cancer Research UK,
Store team leader Paul Starling said: "It is hard to believe that Carole Rodwell's idea could generate such a response in so few years and create a talking point for our local store.
"Once again we thank you for creating this popular fixture and offering us just one of the ways in which we generate support back into the community."
