A market town pub is collecting Easter eggs to make sure homeless children and those in hospital have a "cracking" easter.

The owner of The Red Lion pub in Quebec Street, Dereham has launched an Easter egg appeal.

The cause will see landlady, Simone Knight, donate all proceeds to the hospital and local food bank to make sure no children miss out on the holiday.

Mrs Knight said: "We missed the egg collection last year because we were in a national lockdown, but we have already had lots of messages and eggs donated.

"I think lockdown has shown how kind and generous the people of Dereham really are, please pick up an extra egg when you're at the supermarket."
