Schools around Norfolk have raised hundreds of pounds in aid of Sport Relief.

Howard Junior School, in King’s Lynn, raised £484.40 for the cause with a sports-inspired day, which included fruit kebabs and fitness challenges.

They had a climbing wall, whole-school Zumba, fancy dress - and a cardboard cut-out of British athlete Mo Farah to provide inspiration.

Meanwhile, at Lionwood Junior School, in Norwich, children raised a remarkable £1,038 for Sport Relief.

They did a sponsored run and walk, the distance of which would have taken them all the way to Africa.

The school said one child raised an impressive £90 on their own.

Sport Relief, which supports people in difficulty around both the UK and the world, ran from March 17 to 23.

So far, £38m has been raised.
