A week-long charity event organised by Starlings Florist and Fruiterer, of Swaffham, raised more than £1,000 for Prostate Cancer UK.

The shop donated £2 for every fruit basket and £2 for every flower order of more than £20 sold from Monday, June 15.

This continued until the Saturday while on the Thursday, eight local men sat in the shop window at their Market Place base to raise awareness of the charity and collect money in a bucket.

Kim Starling said: “The whole week went well. We raised a lot of money and had lots of fun.”

It is estimated that one in eight men in Britain will suffer from prostate cancer – a disease that can be beaten.
