Three-quarters of that will be given to the village hall campaign, which aims to raise £9,000 towards the provision of new disabled toilets at the hall.

Officials estimate they have now raised around half the amount needed.

The remainder will be given to the Swaffham and Litcham Home Hospice.

A new group, called Marham Friends, has now been set up to continue fundraising work for projects in the village, working in partnership with the Marham Bowls, Sports and Social Club.
