Winter sports fans tackled a skiing challenge for a children’s charity.

The Norfolk Snowsports Club Skiathon saw 50 people ski 50 miles at its Trowse headquarters.

It was held in aid of Break charity, which improves lives of vulnerable children and young people across East Anglia.

Break and the club are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year.

Competitors in the skiathon were from Norfolk Snowsports Club Ladies Club.

They were also joined by Slalom Sally hair, which is part of this summer’s GoGoHares trail being brought to Norwich and across the county by Break and Wild in Art.

Slalom Sally will be at Norfolk Snowsports Club and part of the GoGoHares moongazer county hare trail. Emma Smith, marketing coordinator for Norfolk Snowsports Club, said: “There was a great atmosphere on the slope during the skiathon.”
