Norwich buggy push raises funds for poorly tots
Families joined together this morning as a buggy push was held in a city park to raise funds for premature babies.
The inaugural fundraiser was organised by mum-of-two Elle Emanuel in aid of special care baby charity Bliss.
Buggies were decorated with balloons while about 20 mums and dads donned charity T-shirts as they pushed their youngsters around a half mile route around Eaton Park in South Park Avenue.
Mrs Emanuel, 33, from Newton Flotman, who took part in the event with 18 month old daughter Mia and four-year-old son Hayden, said: 'For the first one, I was pleased with how it went and the weather was sunny.
'A lot of us went to the park and the children played afterwards. I hope to organise a similar event again.'
