A children's charity is continuing to go above and beyond its fundraising goal as it raises a further £2,000 ahead of a three-day cycle ride.

Wooden Spoon Eastern Counties has smashed its target of £50,000 by hosting a variety of events including dinners and quizzes.

The charity recently held a quiz evening at Norwich Rugby FC, adding £2,000 to the collection pot.

The 85 riders will be taking part in a three-day cycle to raise money for children in Norfolk in September this year.

Earlier in the year a dinner was hosted with 130 guests at Diss Rugby Club, raising £9,000.
