Members of the Thetford 93 have tackled the Three Peaks Challenge in 24 hours and hiked 93 miles from Thetford to Great Yarmouth and back.

And now the group of friends will be fundraising for one of their own members by hosting a concert on Friday, March 24 at 7.30pm.

Mark Dean, a member of the group, said: “Our friend Wayne Harvey has testicular cancer. We want to just show him, ‘look, we’re going to do something for you’.

“It’ll be a showcase of Thetford talent. It is all Thetford for a Thetford lad. “We are so pleased to have Franko Fraize playing it.”

In addition to the rapper, comedian AL Wycherley, DJ Vnds, Charlotte Sometimes and Lou Spencer will be among the acts at the gig at The Hideout on Stephenson Way.

Tickets are £6 and all money will go to Mr Harvey.
