King’s Lynn enjoys Sport Relief at Lynnsport

Charity runners and walkers at West Norfolk venue

Lynnsport was earlier today when runners and walkers arrived to take part in King's Lynn's Sport Relief Mile.

Fundraisers were invited to take part in a one, three or six mile course so they could raise cash for the charity.

The event was included in a weekend at the centre dedicated to encouraging people to get active and enjoy a sport.

The Bodyworks Wellness weekend saw events run across the borough's leisure centres operated by West Norfolk Council in Lynn, Downham Market and Hunstanton.

Sports therapists and diabetic screening were on offer at Lynnsport, alongside a range of activities at the Bodyworks centre within the facility.

Students from the College of West Anglia, which bases its sports studies at the centre, were on hand to help with fitness testing while health experts conducted diabetes screening. There was even a warm-up session prior to the Sport Relief run and a range of other experts were also available over the weekend.
