A thanksgiving service for a revered north Norfolk hotelier raised more than £3,500 for an African charity.

Paul Whittome, the owner of the Hoste Arms in Burnham Market, died in July after losing a year-long battle with cancer.

About 1,200 people from across the world attended a thanksgiving service for the 55-year-old on July 16.

The money raised from the service will be given to the South African campaign One Net One Life which aims to help prevent malaria.

It was a charity close to Mr Whittome's heart as his wife Jeanne Whittome was born in South Africa.

The Hoste Arms will also host a jazz evening next Easter in memory of Mr Whittome to raise more funds for One Net One Life.
