Some of Norwich City's greatest ever players are helping send two children, whose mum died in a tragic accident, on a trip of a lifetime to Florida.

Some of Norwich City's greatest ever players are helping send two children, whose mum died in a tragic accident, on a trip of a lifetime to Florida.

A Legends Charity Penalty Shootout is taking place at Yo Football in Great Yarmouth in memory of Bradwell woman Kelly Palmer, who died in a car accident last November.

Former Canaries goalkeeper and manager Bryan Gunn will be back between the sticks to raise cash for Kelly's children Kyle and Jordan and widower Keith to go on holiday to the Sunshine State.

Mr Gunn will be joined at the event on Friday by fellow ex-City stars Dale Gordon, Jeremy Goss, Darren Huckerby and Darren Eadie.

The fundraiser has been organised by Jason Brown, manager of Blundeston Magpies under-8s football team where seven-year-old Kyle returned to training last week for the first time since suffering serious injuries in the car accident.

He was travelling with sister Jordan, age nine, who was also hurt, to a coaching session when the crash happened involving another car near Lowestoft.

Entry is free to the penalty shoot out at Yo Football, Harfreys Road from 6pm. It costs £5 for four penalties, with those scoring all four going into a draw to receive a football signed by the Norwich City football squad.

Other fun activities include a raffle, with prizes including holidays, meals, signed footballs and hotel breaks, and a children's tombola. Gifts for the raffle and tombola and have been donated by Lion Engineering.
