The organisers of a Thetford fun day were hoping to raise £1,200 for improvements to a nearby play area.

The Redcastle Action Group (RAG) staged the event near the ball park and Meet Up Cafe in St Martin's Way on Saturday to help towards a £50,000 fundraising target for improvements to the Redcastle estate's dilapidated play area.

Events included a performance by the Thundercats dance troupe, based at the Charles Burrell centre in Thetford, paintballing, a bouncy castle and hair braiding.

There was also candy floss and Nanny Mccupcakes.

Cathy Morgan, from RAG, said the aim was to buy new equipment to totally refurbish the play area, which was in a bad state and the fun day would become an annual event.
