People in need in the Dereham and Toftwood area this Christmas could receive a financial windfall to help them enjoy the festive season.

The East Dereham Relief in Need Charity is inviting people to apply for its Christmas grants.

The grants are given to people in the form of vouchers which can be exchanged at many stores throughout the town, including Somerfield, Roys, Palmers, Mobility 2000, Aldous of Dereham and Stead and Simpson.

To apply for a grant people need to pick up an application form from Case and Dewing in Church Street, Dereham.
