More than £1,000 was raised by Thetford Inner Wheel as part of their Armistice Day lunch held in November.

The event, held at Croxton Village Hall, included a display of memorabilia belonging to the club’s members’ relations who had fought in the First World War.

Alongside this were table mats showing a copy of the declaration of peace from a newspaper.

Speeches from rotarians saw letters read out to the guests, with letters from their grandfathers to home from the battle front.

President of Thetford Inner Wheel, Jenny Childerhouse laid a wreath on behalf of Inner Wheel at the Thetford Market Square service on remembrance day itself.

A spokesman said: “The lunch proved to be both emotional and memorable.”
