A charity raffle in Dereham in aid of Norfolk Neighbourhood Watch has raised £105.

Dereham’s deputy mayor Hilary Bushell drew 19 winners of raffle prizes which were donated by local businesses.

Norfolk Neighbourhood Watch is a registered charity and all the money raised helps volunteers keep up the good work they do all around Norfolk, keeping their communities safer. The funds will go towards travel costs and buying lamp post signs for new or existing members.

Terry Burrell, area co-ordinator, said: “Our funding is very low and we rely on donations for us to travel, attending meetings at parishes and all around England. We are all volunteers and we do it for our communities.”

Anyone who can help with donations or to raise funds can contact Mr Burrell or wife Vanessa who is charity fund raiser by email to burrellterry71@hotmail.co.uk.
