A group of Norwich locals braved the frosty temperatures to take part in the event in Chapelfield Gardens.

Chloe Tucker, Norwich yoga instructor, said: “We were determined not to let the event be rained off.

“We still had a lot of fun and raised money for a worthy cause. Next year, the event will be inside!”
