A hotel manager swapped his normal duties for the night to help raise money for charity by showcasing his singing skills.
Quinton Haverson, 37, general manager of the Hotel Wroxham, became Elvis Presley for a night on Saturday to boost his charity run in this year's London Marathon.
Mr Haverson from Dereham Road in Norwich, who has performed as the king at several weddings and other events, staged the event at the hotel, for the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust, which helps people suffering from leukaemia.
Mr Haverson is running in this year's London Marathon which takes place on April 25 and covers 26.2 miles, to help raise money for the bone marrow trust. He chose the charity as a family member is currently battling leukaemia.
