Capes flew in the breeze as youngsters from Hethersett Junior School took on a fun run around the school in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The school's charitable efforts raised more than £345 for the cause.

The day was put on by students Evan and Isabella Williams, who arranged the day in memory of their uncle.

Headteacher Matthew Parslow-Williams said the compassion showed by the pair was typical of students at the school.
