Ronald Hemp, of Pakefield, is making the plea as a recent burst appendix has restricted his movement and left him fatigued.

The 90-year-old has raised £1,300 for the charity since he started painting three years ago.

Mr Hemp said: 'When I started painting I thought that this could all go to some good cause.

'If there are any pubs, clubs, showrooms or auctioneers who think they could help I want them to get in touch.'
