From moustaches to marathons! Chris takes on latest fundraising challenge

He is well known for sporting a striking moustache, but now Chris Wall is set to take on an even hairier test.
Mr Wall is preparing for the ultimate running challenge - the London Marathon on April 23.
The former North Walsham High School pupil will be aiming to raise £2,600 - £100 for each mile of the marathon - for mens' health charity Movember Foundation. It is a cause close to his heart after watching his best friend successfully go through cancer treatment. Mr Wall, 28, also lost a close friend to depression in 2015.
He has raised more than £10,000 for the foundation with friends and family over the past eight years and sports a moustache throughout November for the Grow a Mo campaign.
A teacher at Eaton Hall Specialist Academy in Norwich, Mr Wall also organises fundraising events at the school.
