A heritage calendar created to remember what a South Norfolk town used to be like has raised more than £2,000 for charity.
Dennis Cross, a retired builder, has lived and worked in Diss all his life, watching it change through the years. Now he collects postcards and photos which show the history of the town.
He used these to create the calendar, which raised £2,367 for the Big C cancer charity.
Mr Cross said: 'I was very impressed with the response. I was not expecting to sell that amount. I've had people telling me they have been sent around the world as people still like to see the village.'
Calendars have been sent as far away as Australia and America.

'People who have lived here like to look back and see how the town has changed,' Mr Cross added.
Mr Cross sold the calendars around Diss, including at Leslie Ward Collectables and Photo Elite, who help Mr Cross create it.
