Four well-known charities have landed a big catch – thanks to a fishing club.
The Aylsham Angling Society, which in its heyday had dozens of members around north Norfolk, folded in 2018 after the retirement of long-serving secretary Keith Sutton, who had overseen the club for over 50 years.
More than £2000 was left in residual funds so the committee decided to split the money between the well-deserving charities.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance, Cromer RNLI, Guide Dogs for the Blind and Support Dogs will all receive £500.
Nigel Waller, treasurer of the society, said: "We just couldn't replace Keith, who had done an amazing job since the start of the club, and with the pressures on peoples' time and various other factors we decided, sadly, to dissolve the club."
