A Norwich youngster with autism has held a fundraiser to support others with the condition.
Reiss Goslitski held the fundraiser earlier this week at his school, Jane Austen College on Colegate in the city centre, to support the National Autistic Society.
It coincided with World Autism Awareness Week, which runs from March 26 to April 2 and inspired the youngster's desire to give something back.
Mum Chantelle said he had raised just over £43 - and generously decided to donate an extra £10 of his own pocket money.
About 700,000 people in the UK are on the autism spectrum, which means, the National Autistic Society estimates, autism is a part of life for roughly 2.8m people around the country.
