Schools around Norfolk have raised hundreds of pounds in aid of Sport Relief.

Howard Junior School, in King's Lynn, raised £484.40 for the cause with a sports-inspired day, which included fruit kebabs and fitness challenges.

They had a climbing wall, whole-school Zumba, fancy dress - and a cardboard cut-out of British athlete Mo Farah to provide inspiration.

Meanwhile, at Lionwood Junior School, in Norwich, children raised a remarkable £1,038 for Sport Relief.

They did a sponsored run and walk, the distance of which would have taken them all the way to Africa.

Sport Relief, which supports people in difficulty around both the UK and the world, ran from March 17 to 23.
