Norwich schoolboys walk to Cromer for Cancer Research UK

It all started with the idea of walking to the coast during the Christmas holidays.
Originally, the Sewell Park Academy schoolboys planned on walking from Norwich to Yarmouth, but they reluctantly accepted there was not enough daylight at this time of year.
Instead, the boys decided they would walk Weavers Way, from Aylsham to Cromer, and they would raise money for charity while they were at it.
During the last weeks of term, the headteacher allowed the boys to use assemblies to amass support for their fundraiser, with donations so far totalling £319.98.
The walk was approximately 17 miles and took the schoolmates around seven hours to complete.

Upon arriving in Cromer, the boys met a lady on the beach called Jenni Randall who shared their story on the Enjoy Cromer More Facebook page.
The post has since received more than 200 likes.
