People can bid in an online auction to a stay at several properties across the county whose owners have signed up to scheme. The proceeds are then given to the charity.

Some of the locations include Sheringham, Holt, Brancaster, Blickling, Snettisham, Stiffkey, Cromer and Kelling Heath.

Street Child, which was founded by Tom Dannatt, from Norwich, in 2008, brings education and emergency aid to some of the poorest children in the world.

The auction is running until 8pm on Sunday, April 24.

Other locations beyond Norfolk are also on offer, including spots in Corfu, Cornwall, Oxfordshire, Croatia, Paris and southwest France.
