Downham Market shop charity day raises hundreds
Teddy bears, raffle prizes and a cake stall were among the amusements at a charity shop fundraiser in Downham on Saturday.
Visitors to the Sue Ryder furniture shop on the outskirts of the town helped staff raise more than £900 for the charity.
Assistant manager Linda Rodwell said the store gets involved with fundraising a couple of times a year – in summer and winter – to go towards hospices and other centres Sue Ryder has.
A teddy bear raffle, a general raffle and teas and cakes contributed to the profits of the day, which saw about 600 people come through the doors.
