A cadet group's annual summer camp has been salvaged by a last minute financial boost.
It had been feared that Great Yarmouth's TS Warrior Cadets would miss out on their annual trip, after a funding initiative it made use of was discontinued.
However, the trip to North Walsham is now going ahead as planned, after the troop was selected to receive £1,000 as part of Comic Relief's Community Cash scheme.
It would have been the first time in the group's history - which spans more than 20 years - that its cadets would not have gone on a summer camp.
Commanding officer Ian Shearn said: 'It was a huge relief to discover that we had received a grant. Some parents also dug in a little deeper to help too, so I'm really relieved.
'It would have been a massive shame for the trip to have been called off, for some of our cadets the camp is their only chance to get out and do something like it.'
