A agricultural society has presented a child bereavement charity with a cheque for £10,000.
The money was raised for Nelson's Journey during the annual Wayland Ball held in March at Lyndford Hall.
The ball is organised by the Wayland Agricultural Society, and raises money for charities each year.
Sarah Hyde, of Nelson's Journey, said: 'A full package of support costs £522 for a child or young person. This includes an assessment of a child's bereavement needs, attendance on a therapeutic weekend and one to one follow up work.
'That means the fantastic £10,000 could fund 19 children through this process, helping them to move forward positively with their lives.'
