A village carnival raised more than £200 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).
The Watton Carnival helped to raise £215.74 with £58.89 coming from street collections alone.
It also hosted a stand at the event selling merchandise and talking to the public about all the work they are doing to help save lives across the region.
Sophie Emmanuel, Norfolk Fundraising Officer at EAAA, said; 'We love getting out and about in the local community, meeting the public and letting them know about the service we provide.
'As a community funded charity we rely on kind donations from the public to keep our helicopters in the sky, and are so pleased that the Watton community came out and showed their support.'
