A Swaffham cafe put on a free Christmas lunch for more than 20 people today after generous donations from customers and suppliers.
Sandra Berryman, who took over The Tea Pot Cafe, in Plowright Place, in February said she was shocked and amazed at the amount of support offered when she suggested the idea.
Food and drink was donated by Roger Holme Foods, Tesco, Freshpac Coffees, L and H Fruits and customers, who also provided financial donations.
Mrs Berryman's staff members, sisters Ruth Neale and Rachel Neale, worked free of charge.
