A charity baker raised almost £800 for Help for Heroes as he returned to fundraising action.
David Brown, from Beccles, made his long-awaited return to his stall at Exchange Square, in the town, at the weekend, where he sold out of his goods by noon.
The 78-year-old, who raised £784.80 on the day and will return on October 30, said: "I was completely sold out by 12pm with nothing to sell, not even crumbs.
"I was up at 3am baking sausage rolls and sometimes you wonder whether it's worth it, but when you have days like Saturday it absolutely is.
"I can't thank people enough for turning up. It really was amazing."
