Old photographs and memorabilia of a north Norfolk village have helped raise £1,005.50 for charity.
The event, at Gimingham Village Hall on March 23 and 24, raised was opened by broadcaster/author Keith Skipper, and featured a collection of old photographs of the village, along with historical information and features.
June Collingwood, organiser, said the event was 'hugely popular'.
She said: 'We were overwhelmed by the support of so many people for this event.'
Proceeds will go to the MS Therapy Centre Norfolk, a charity which provides therapies, services and help from health care professionals to people affected by any long-term neurological condition such as MS, Stroke, Parkinson's and motor neurone disease.
