Children aged from three to 
13 at Town Close House Preparatory School in Norwich, swam in the swimming pool, cycled around the playground and ran through the 10-acre site in aid of the school charity Special Olympics Norfolk.

The charity offers any individual with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to access sport and realise their sporting potential.

Charitable donations raised 
by the children, through sponsorship and on-site stalls and games, will go directly towards Special Olympics and its 60 registered athletes.

Nicholas Bevington, headmaster, said: “The athletes from Special Olympics Norfolk have inspired us all with their determination and joyful participation in sport – it has been a honour to work with and support them this year.”
