Musical tribute to teacher James Brooke, 26, raises £1,000
A musical fund-raising event in memory of a teacher who died in a skydiving accident raised more than £1,000 on Saturday.
The sold-out event, featuring six local bands and a sell-out audience, raised funds for Riverwalk School's Rebound Therapy programme.
Teacher James Brooke, 26, who died in an incident at Beccles Airfield last month, had instigated and was co-ordinating the fund-raising for the programme.
His funeral was held on Saturday in his hometown of Hunstanton.
Jan Hatchell, headteacher, said: "We are thrilled to hear how much money was raised and that it helped to create a day of tribute for James.
"The funeral service and wake were a wonderful celebration of a life cut tragically short."
