The family fun day at Heigham Park last Saturday was organised by Norwich-based charity Care For Children to celebrate the launch of the organisation's Vietnam Project.

The event saw more than 400 people head to the city park to enjoy a range of family-friendly activities that included face-painting, a bouncy castle, football, crafts, cake decorating and games.

Care For Children partners with governments in Asia to help orphaned and abandoned children move out of institutions and into loving, local families. So far, the charity's work has helped more than 300,000 children across China and Thailand.

A new project is due to start in Vietnam this summer.
