The North Norfolk Breathe Easy group raised £500 for the British Lung Foundation (BLF) last year.
The support group for those in the area suffering from lung diseases such as Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) raised the money through regular fundraising events including raffles, book sales and bake sales.
The group meets on the first Friday of the month, between 1.30pm and 3.30pm, at Sheringham community centre in Holway Road.
The BLF's press and campaigns officer Jenna Greig collected the cheque and met the group.
The BLF is the only UK charity fighting to help the one in five people in the UK affected by lung disease, by researching new treatments, campaigning for better awareness and services, and providing support and advice for patients, carers and family members.
For help and support, call the BLF helpline on 03000 030 555.
