Brightly-coloured hoops were spun around bodies as part of a fundraiser for a new charity launched after a young boy's sad death.

Participants in the 'Powerhooping' event at Hethersett Woodside School on Tuesday raised £1,425 for Finnbar's Force, which was set up to help children suffering from brain tumours and their families.

Organiser Jane Keeley said she was thrilled with the amount raised at the event, which also included a picnic, disco and barbecue.

Powerhooping involves exercising with a weighted hula hoop.
