Five decades of tireless work were saluted as a rotary club hosted more than 30 good causes which have benefitted from its work.
As part of its ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations, Swaffham Rotary Club brought together a multitude of charities during the gathering at the town's Assembly Rooms on Wednesday.
The special event was opened by Lord Dannatt, who was given an insight into the far-reaching effect of the club's commitment to helping the community.
"Rotary clubs provide a very important function, bringing people together to do something good for the community," said Lord Dannatt. "It's a great asset to have and well done to Swaffham Rotary for pulling all these organisations together.
"Money is tight when it comes to local authorities, so volunteering and charities are truly the way forward."
