Organisers of the 14th annual Christmas Tree Festival in Fakenham Parish church are celebrating after raising £16,540 for church funds over the eight-day event.

Thousands attended the festival and treasurer Sue Stewart announced the total two days after it closed.

She said: “This is an amazing result and a big thank you is due to all who helped in any way.

“It has been a tremendous effort and a lot of people have put a lot of hard work into making this the great success it has been.”

The most recent figure for the more than 60 charities involved in the event was £17,600 although a number of totals still remain outstanding.

Macmillan Cancer Support drew the largest contribution of more than £800.
