Norwich Union Rugby Football Club (NURFC) raised £529 at their second annual fireworks display.

The event represented the beginning of a partnership between the club and Wooden Spoon - the children's charity of rugby.

The partnership is part of a wider scheme that aims to mutually benefit both rugby clubs and the charity through joint fundraising initiatives.

Tickets for the event sold out and homemade food was provided by the club's volunteer catering team.

Fern Blundell, event organiser, said: 'I'm extremely pleased that we have achieved our goal of putting on a professionally organised display for local families at a reasonable price.
