Lowestoft roller skaters help Children in Need

About �1,000 has been raised for this year's Children in Need appeal thanks to the fast moving efforts of Lowestoft roller skaters.

On Saturday more than 30 members of the Waveney Roller Skating Club took part in a 12 hour skating session in the sports hall of Lowestoft's Denes High School, where the club train every Wednesday night.

As well as donning their roller skates members dressed up in fancy dress as they whizzed around the sports hall.

Included in the small army of fast moving fund-raisers was the club's youngest member, five-year-old Jayden Moyse, of Cutler Road, Lowestoft.

Each of the roller skaters was allowed a short break every hour to draw breath and rest their weary legs.
