Going on a trip to the broads can be an exciting experience for school children but sometimes youngsters living with disabilities can find getting around the exciting sites a struggle.
A group of pupils from Saint Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic School, Norwich have made exploring How Hill that bit easier by donating an all-terrain wheelchair to the How Hill Trust.
The pupils raised more than £2,800 for the wheelchair by taking part in a sponsored run.
Lizzy Ames, education manager for How Hill Trust said: 'This new wheelchair will allow children to access almost all of the broads. We have already used it four times and it isn't just for people with disabilities, for example if someone has broken their leg they can use it.
'We are also able to share the resource with other broads in the region. The school visits us regularly so it's lovely they wanted to give back to us.'
