Music lovers who enjoyed a night of Northern soul have helped a little boy with a congenital heart defect.

Trevor 'Half-Nelson' Bailey, one of the organisers of the Cromer Soul Club event on September 1, presented a cheque for £702.50 to Kyra Welch, mum of five-year-old Kaiden Griffin, who has defied doctors' expectations to reach the age of five.

Miss Welch, who is from North Creake, near Fakenham, and now lives in Holt, said: 'We've had some really amazing support and with soul club raising money it goes towards supporting children like Kaiden. We're really grateful for it.'

Mr Bailey said more than 120 people were at the fundraising night.

He said: 'Cromer Soul Club decided we'd like to make our events charitable, and Kaiden's Big Fight [his charity] was chosen because he's local to Holt, and it's a very worthy cause. We'll continue to raise money as long as we've got the interest.'
