The good soles of Downham Market have helped its rotary club's shoebox scheme.

The boxes are filled with clothes, toys and useful household goods and sent to countries such as Romania.

A spokesperson for Downham Market Rotary Club said: "Thanks to all the generous donors we were able to despatch just under 300 rotary shoeboxes to poorer parts of Eastern Europe before Christmas.

"Our donors range from local churches - special thanks to Denver Parish Church - the pupils of Denver and Runcton Holme schools, and many local Downham Market residents, not to mention the two generous sisters from Hunstanton, who filled 60 boxes between them.

"A huge thank you to all was extended by our president, Kay Lincoln."
