A charity gig featuring auction lots from a host of rock legends and television stars raised �3,500.
The North Walsham Live Aid event had performances from five bands including Shy Fly and the Pocket Godzillas at the town's community centre.
In between the music, a charity auction was held with 35 lots ranging from DVDs and photos to a drum head signed by Queen's Roger Taylor and Pink Floyd's Nick Mason.
Last night event organiser Barry Holden said he was writing a cheque for �3,500 for the Teenage Cancer Trust, which is adapting a ward at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge to make it more suitable for young patients.
