A group of postmen and women are trying to raise a smile and raise money by wearing fancy dress on their deliveries.
The posties at Dereham delivery office hope to raise some smiles from isolated residents, and some funds for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Trust Charity Covid19 Appeal.
Spokeswoman Romana Bachmann said: “We took inspiration from other posties across the country who have been brightening people’s days while delivering in fancy dress.
“We have raised £308 of our target of £1300. We would like to thank all the people who have donated so far.
“Also, a massive thank you to Arnie’s Attic, Dereham, for lending us some costumes. And the community for the many donations of costumes. The support we have had has been incredible.”
