A fun run with a difference saw hundreds of people covered in bubbles and foam as they raised at least £40,000 for a new Norfolk hospice.
There were 1,800 people taking part in Saturday's Bubble Rush in Earlham Park - a five kilometre fun run which began in a sea of bubbles.
There were also four bubble stations en route, with a cannon blasting out coloured foam to create 4ft deep bubble baths for the runners to make their way through.
The event was organised by the East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) to raise money for the nook appeal - a £10m campaign to build a new hospice for at Framingham Earl.
Emma Benstead, EACH Norfolk events fundraiser, said: 'We're still counting the money raised at the moment, but the total will be at least £40,000.'
The next Bubble Rush will be in King's Lynn on Saturday, June 16 with tickets at www.each.org,uk/bubblerush
