Students from Dereham Sixth Form College are going to run the Norwich City Half Marathon to raise money for East Anglian Children's Hospices.

The six students and one staff member are primarily supporting the nook Appeal, which needs £10 million to build a new purpose-built hospice, close to Norwich.

The students said in a joint statement: 'We wish to support East Anglian Children's Hospices (EACH) because of their hard-working approach to supporting children with life-threatening conditions.

'We love what EACH does for our community, but they can't do it without support. Please donate however much you like on our page so we can give EACH as much as possible to make their vision a reality.'

The students will be fundraising in Dereham after the Easter break and you can sponsor them through Just Giving at
