The event in Hemsby on Friday (September 11) is open to all ages and abilities with activities ranging from circuits, tyre-pull, ropes, and yoga in two, 45 minute sessions at 5.30pm and 6.30pm.

James Bensly, a borough councillor who is open about his own mental health issues, said the fundraiser for MIND was being staged by the village Co-op store and the Richardsons holiday park.
