Desperate people at a food bank were given a cash boost by a Norfolk rotary club.

Holt Rotary Club presented Cromer and District Foodbank with a cheque for £500 last month.

Club spokesman Greg Cooper said: “The charity is a lifeline for families and individuals who cannot buy food or fuel to literally keep themselves alive. And while the situation is usually temporary, some people require longer term help.”

The foodbank’s team leader David Connolly Hart said: “This money will increase our ability to support local people in desperate need.”

The club also held its 61st annual Christmas dinner at the Feathers Hotel in Holt.

About 40 members and guests attended and, after an excellent meal, entertainment was provided by John Rampling with his rendition of some of John Betjeman’s seasonal writing.

Mr Cooper added: “Two events on one day and both with a rotary feel-good factor.”
