Hundreds of pounds has been donated to two West Norfolk charities as businesses around King's Lynn gear up to take part in a series of challenges this year.

King's Lynn Foodbank, which helped to feed 3,600 people last year and West Norfolk Mind both received £200 from the Vancouver Quarter after the shopping centre pledged to make a donation to the charity chosen by the winners of the 2016 business challenge series, which were Ward Gethin Archer and Primark.

The King's Lynn businesses have both signed up to take part in the 2017 series, which begins with pancake racing at the centre on Tuesday, February 28. The other business challenges planned for this year include egg and spoon racing in April, beat the goalie in July and a mystery challenge in October.

Any businesses interested in taking part in this year's business challenges are being encouraged to email info@vancouverquarter.com as soon as possible.
