A seven-year-old girl from Taverham has raised a remarkable £800 for a cancer charity after she climbed Mount Snowdon.
Ruby May Jennings, joined by parents Becki and Matthew and family friends, climbed the Welsh mountain earlier this month in aid of Cancer Research UK.
The youngster, a pupil at Drayton Junior School, has raised £800 so far, and said she feels 'really happy and proud' to have completed the feat.
She said it took the group seven hours and 43 minutes, with the journey covering just over 13 miles.
'I felt really excited, it was so wonderful to see all the beautiful surroundings,' she said. 'It was so, so fun going up and down.'

She said they encountered a 'really freaky and scary' stretch near the top of the mountain, with a sheer drop and an icy path to contend with.
But the group made the journey, and Ruby May said she only fell over once, which was 'very surprising because in class I always fall over chair legs'.
