Norwich Mumbler Big Day in the City, which was held in Castle Gardens on Sunday, raised £540 for the children's charity Finnbar's Force.

The event, run by Norwich Mumbler, an online parenting community, was sponsored by Castle Mall and Cozens-Hardy Solicitors.

There were class tasters for children to take part in throughout the day in a special marquee in the gardens and activities for children to do on each stand.

Businesses that participated included Norfolk Library Service, High Altitude Trampoline Park, Baby Sensory, Glo Popkidz, UEA Developmental Dynamics Laboratory and Crazy Skins face painting.
