Christopher Earp had been a student at Dereham Sixth Form College but lost his battle with cancer in February 2006 when he was 16 years old.

Since he died, fundraising has been held locally for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The latest activities, street collections in Swaffham and Dereham, raised £61.57 and £51.70. Permit-holder Elaine Skinner thanked everyone who had supported the cause.

Other events planned this year include a pantomime at Barnham Broom on Saturday and bingo in March in Christopher's home village.
