More than £9,000 was raised at a cley pigeon shoot in, of all places, Cley.
The annual shoot in the north Norfolk village of Cley yielded a total of £9,150, which will go towards the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children's efforts to protect Norfolk's primary school children.
More than 200 people turned out to the June 2 event, and, as well as the shooting, there was a hog roast, book sale and raffle.
Alice Atkinson, who helped host the shoot, said: "This is usually a very local event and this year we had a lot of new people that turned up. I'm still getting loads of complimentary e-mails.
"Without our sponsors, it just wouldn't be possible to put on the event that we did, especially the raffle, all the prizes came through donations."
