Teams of superheroes united across our area on Friday to do their bit for Children in Need.
Fund-raisers in Thetford, Brandon Mildenhall, Swaffham and villages in between raised thousands of pounds between them for long-running BBC cause.
In Thetford, the team at Metcalfe Copeman & Pettefar Solicitors (MCP) raised £333.53.
Staff dressed up as their favourite superheroes and sold a range of homemade cakes to raise the cash.
Andrew Davies, Partner at MCP, said: 'We wish to say a big 'thank you' to all who supported us and bought cakes from our stall on Friday to raise funds for Children in Need.'

The Lions were joined by Pudsey as they hosted a collection outside Swaffham Assembly Rooms and the Co-op.
A total of £431 was raised and will go towards helping disadvantaged children.
Dennis Tallon, activities chairman, said: 'The joy on the children's faces when they spotted Pudsey was lovely to see and they would give him a big hug and say how much they loved him.
'The Lions are proud to be associated with such a great national occasion and despite the cold, wet weather, £431 was raised and will go directly to Children in Need.'
