Events are being planned at Somerleyton Hall to raise funds for the British Red Cross.

Lord Somerleyton is opening up his grounds on Sunday June 11 for people to take part in a sponsored 10km run or 5km walk.

The event will help to raise money for local services and will also help to support the Refugee Appeal in Europe.

Paul Fleet, senior community fundraiser for British Red Cross in Norfolk and Suffolk, said: 'Without the support of places such as Somerleyton Hall and people like Lord Somerleyton, we would really struggle to provide our services. I really hope the people of Suffolk and Norfolk would like to support us by taking part'

Entry costs £30 for runners and £10 for walkers. Participants should raise at least £30 in sponsorship.
