Over �1,400 raised by Old Catton Family for Global Poverty Project by feeding themselves for just �1 a day

An Old Catton family's fundraising efforts for the Global Poverty Project have raised over �1,400.

The Pointer family, who live in Norman Drive, took part in the project's annual Live Below the Line challenge, feeding themselves for just �1 a day between last Monday and Friday.

The family - Mark and Ann Marie Pointer, Paul and Martin McConnell and Daria Nazarova - are members of the Norwich branch of Results UK.

Paul said: 'Getting the food wasn't the problem, it was the blandness of the food! I ate so much beans. We are really pleased to raise that much money.'
