North Walsham mayor Barry Hester has already raised £2,850 for his civic charity, the town’s hospital League of Friends, which provides ‘extras’ for patients, visitors and staff.

The latest boost to the funds comes from the gift of a dozens of pairs of shoes from local businesswoman Ann Bullimore, following the closure of her shop in the precinct.

A range of children’s women’s and men’s footwear will be sold for the charity on Sunday February 24 at the White Swan pub between 11am and 2pm.

Mayor Barry Hester said: “We are grateful for the donation, which will enable people to get bargain shoes and us to boost the Friends’ funds.”

He is hoping to top £3,000 through the shoe sale, annual civic dinner in April and a planned comedy night in June.
