A special raffle in aid of East Anglia's Children's Hospices (Each) will be held in north Norfolk to celebrate 50 years of the Arts Society.

Patricia Spencer, study days organiser, The Arts Society Glaven Valley Norfolk, said: 'One of our events is a special raffle. Prizes include gifts from Morston Hall and Benedict's restaurant, Norwich.

'The proceeds from this raffle will be for Each and we shall present the cheque to a representative from the charity on September 18.

'This will be held in the afternoon at Cley village hall, where our members will be enjoying tea and a piece of celebratory cake. This is a very special event.'

The Arts Society Glaven Valley was founded as Glaven Valley DFAS (decorative and fine arts society) in 1989 and has about 270 members. It meets in the afternoon on the third Tuesday of each month except July, August and December, normally in Cley.
