Two charities will be boosted by the £7,320 raised by Downham Young Farmers at a popular dinner and dance.

The club celebrated its 70th anniversary with a ball at Stradsett Estate which is raising money for West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled and the Norfolk Hospice.

Charlotte Waters, the club’s chairwoman, said: “Our dinner dance was the perfect way to celebrate the past YFC year and the 70 years of the club. It was unbelievable that so many people wanted to attend and I’m very proud to be have been part of organising such an event. I’m truly thankful for the help of all the club, guests and sponsors, they all played a big part in making the 70th Anniversary Ball a success.”
