The proceeds from this year's North Walsham Live Aid gig have been donated to the Norwich-based Jenny Lind Children's Hospital.

Louise Cook, fundraising manager at Norwich and Norfolk University Hospitals, thanked the team behind the April 21 fundraiser, which featured musicians such as Buster James, Parallel Times and the Blackjacks, as well as an auction of rock 'n' roll memorabilia and other collectables.

Ms Cook said: 'This was an amazing amount of money to raise and we are delighted that Barry and Chris Holden chose their local children's hospital to benefit from this fantastic event.

'Our children's matron Paula Mellor and her team were delighted to be able to say thank you in person for all their hard work in putting together the event.'

She added: 'We hope that this will inspire others to support their local hospital where we know donations like this can make a huge difference to our patients.'
