Boost to Salvation Army coffers thanks to community carol service

More than £450 was raised for the Salvation Army at a community carol concert held annually in a festive street.
Paget Adams Drive in Dereham is recognised as being one of the most Christmassy streets in the town, and even in Norfolk, with almost every house illuminated with lights and ornaments.
Through visitors to see the lights the residents of the cul-de-sac raise funds for the Salvation Army and its band plays carols at the service in the open air.
Held on Wednesday, December 20 the concert was attended by around 350 people from across Dereham and further afield.
Organisers said the money raised will be matched pound for pound by Barclays bank to further support the work of the Salvation Army in Norfolk.
An online giving page is also open for donations at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/pagetadamsdrive.
