Norfolk Hospice fundraiser Val Smith was in Hunstanton Town Hall on Saturday at the Fencraft Craft Fair with a range of upcycled jewellery. Val said: “I mend all the broken jewellery that is donated to the Hospice shops and give it a new lease of life – for example if you look at these earrings you’ll see I’ve replaced all the wires and they look like new.

“Then all the money goes to the hospice.” With the help of John Abbott and Ian Macey who organise the Craft Fairs and who have donated a proportion of the table rental amounting to £450, Val’s jewellery sales, a raffle and tombola takings amounts to £2,200 over the past nine months.
