Hundreds of pounds were raised for injured soldiers when a group of Norwich took to the ice.

The Norwich Ice Skating Exhibition was held at Planet Ice in Hellesdon on September 11.

As part of the skating showcase, 15-year-old Phil Bond did a solo routine to ‘Star Spangled Banner’ in honour of those who died or were injured in New York on 9/11.

Five-year-old Lara Harrold also performed a solo to The Lion King favourite ‘I Just Can’t Wait to Be King’. Sixty skaters took part in the event in aid of Help for Heroes. Three hundred pounds were raised.
