A cheque for £1,010.25 was handed over to inspirational army veteran double amputee Duncan Slater, who lives in Scole and who has completed a several gruelling endurance challenges despite losing both his legs in Afghanistan, on behalf of the charity.
The idea for the good cause came from owner Cemal Adiguzel, 36, who wanted to mark the recent centenary of the First World War armistice.
He said: “We had a great result it was very busy day, lots people came from Diss and villages near by. We are all so happy that our customers have donated to such a great cause, we are very proud of out heroes. We also would like to thank Duncan Slater for helping organising this day with us.
“We hope to do again next year because our charity days always turn out amazing, we can’t thank our customers enough.”
