A Broads church has received a £1,000 boost thanks to a dedicated fundraiser
 
Paul Nicholls, who raised just under £2,000 for the Norfolk Churches Trust last year, received the Prince of Wales' Certificate after being crowned top fundraiser in the county for the trust
 
Mr Nicholls raised the money by visiting 50 churches in last year's Norfolk Churches Trust annual bike ride
 
He received a signed certificate from the High Sheriff of Norfolk, Lady Clare Agnew, a member of the trust's advisory council, at St Peter and St Paul Church in Burgh Castle near Great Yarmouth

The village church will receive half of Mr Nicholls' fundraising total

It was the second year in a row he has received royal recognition from the Prince of Wales, patron of the Norfolk Churches Trust

This year's Norfolk Churches Trust bike ride takes place on 14th September
