A first responders' group was among the beneficiaries as Roy's stores donated £850 to local good causes during July.
Darren Coles, Wroxham food hall manager, presented Stalham and Smallburgh first responders with a cheque for £250.
The money helped to buy a defibrillator trainer, which will be used to train the public on how to use defibrillator machines in schools, pubs, and shops.
The first responders are volunteers who live or work within the area, and are trained by the East of England Ambulance Service to give basic life support.
Roy's also donated £100 to North Walsham Men's Shed to buy items such as tools, paints, screws, and nails.
Meanwhile, Roy's of Bowthorpe store manager Dan Dicks presented Colman Junior School PTA in Norwich with a cheque for £500 towards an outside play area.
The money was raised through the Making a Difference Locally charity, from the sales of grocery products throughout Roy's stores.
