Homes for Wells works to get local people into houses of their own in one of the most sought-after places in Norfolk. 

As house prices soar, the waiting list continues to grow and it is working on acquiring more properties, while refurbishing two flats in Northfield Waye. 

Karen Clarke, fundraiser and financial administrator at Homes for Wells, said: "We appreciate each and every donation and look forward to obtaining further homes as soon as we can."

Tickets for the upcoming fundraiser are priced at £22.50, including dinner. To book, email karen.clarke@homesforwells.com.
