A fashion show held by a networking group has raised money for a dementia charity.
Wayland Women in Business held the event at Broom Hall Country Hotel in Saham Toney, near Watton.
Women from businesses across Wayland took part as models and a total of £540 was raised for the Wayland Memory Cafe, formerly known as the dementia cafe.
Debbie Harris, from Wayland Women in Business, said: 'We are always looking to give something back. The cafe is local and we wanted to support them through our fashion show.'
Clothes were provided by Artichoke, which has a shop in Swaffham, and money was raised from ticket sales and a raffle.
