A concert featuring the county's up-and-coming musicians will be held to raise money for a pilgrimage by 10 disabled children.
Organisers hope the event, which takes place in North Walsham on Saturday, March 7, will raise at least �500 for the Handicapped Children's Pilgrimage Trust (HCPT) to send a group of Norfolk youngsters to Lourdes at Easter.
Elly Perrott, from Stalham, has arranged the concert - which will include performances from jazz musician Tom Harris and Norfolk's Young Musician of the Year finalist Anna Perrott.
The 21-year-old, who is a support worker for a local charity, said: "The work of the trust is so worthwhile. It has made me realise how a little time and effort can make such a difference to people."
