Students and dogs have teamed up to support an animal rescue charity.

Level 3 animal science students at East Coast College have raised more than £200 for the Little Heaven Shelter dog rescue charity in Romania.

The students raised the money by organising a sponsored dog walk starting by the Ocean Room in Gorleston.

They walked to Hopton and took a picture at the furthest point before they turned to go back to the starting point.

The group said it was a challenge for the dogs as there were some really small ones taking part not used to walking that far.
