A mini pop festival added almost £1,200 to the coffers of Cromer-based charity About with Friends.
Rob Woolnough and Marian Rayman arranged for musician friends to perform in the garden of their Thurgarton home.
Rob and Marion's granddaughter Nicole, who is a member of About with Friends, attended the event with the charity's youth and adult groups.
More than 100 pop fans were treated to performances from the likes of the Busketeers, blues guitarist Mickey Flynn, singer Alan Harper with guest guitarist Lee Vasey and many other local singers and musicians.
A massive raffle and tombola helped swell the takings as did a face-painting stall run by About with Friends and sales of cakes baked by their catering team
About With Friends offers people with learning disabilities opportunities to develop friendships, engage in social activities, learn skills and get involved in the community.
