A Norwich ju jitsu club is raising money for one of their students with inoperable brain cancer.

The event which has been organised on behalf of World Ju Jitsu Federation (WJJF) will offer a family friendly day of fundraising.

Entertainment includes stilt walkers, face painting, raffles and martial arts and self defence sessions.

WWE wrestler Paige Knight from the film 'Fighting with my family ' will be making a guest appearance along with the Mayor of Norwich.

Brett Lemon, 40, the event organiser said: "Our goal would be to raise £3000 and we would like people to enjoy themselves.
