Friends and family of a baby with a rare eye condition raised over £3,000 for a charity which has supported the youngster by completing the Tour de Broads North.
The group of six took on the 100-mile challenge from Hoveton Hall in aid of the YoungEyes group organised by the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB).
Included in the group was Vaughan Kay, 36, from Alpington, who is father of 10-month-old Rhiannon Kay.
The youngster was born with aniridia - meaning her iris in her eye is missing. It means she is unable to adjust to differing levels of light.
She and her parents are supported by the YoungEyes group at the NNAB base on Magpie Road, Norwich, which offers sensory sessions.
