An unusual charity fun day held in Stanhoe
A site where First World War training trenches have been discovered went back to era to host an unusual fundraising event for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn.
There were actors playing soliders in the trenches, and also nurses explaining some of the medical procedures used on the battlefields as part of the activites which were themed around the First World War and World War Two.
They were organised for families to learn about the historic events while also raising money towards medical equipment for the Breast Cancer Unit Development Fund.
The event - titled 'War at the Hollow' was the first ever fundraiser to be held at the Dreamy Hollow Woodland Campsite and World War One trenches in Fakenham Road.
Managing director Nigel Day said: 'We discovered the World War One training trenches here in 2012 and we've turned an acre of the site into an historic setting for schools to visit.

'So we thought we'd extent this to a charity day and offer free entry for visitors and organise war-themed activities to raise funds for an important department at our local hospital.'
The event was held at the weekend and raised over £600.
