A nursing home resident who has undergone two knee operations cycled 21 miles on a static machine during a fund-raising week.
Residents and staff at Meadow House nursing home in Swaffham took part in challenges to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis and funds for the MS Awareness Trust.
Staff arranged activities for residents, their relatives and day centre service users.
They ran bingo games, held a raffle, sang karaoke and held a coffee morning. The main challenge was a static bike ride.
Between them, the residents and service users, many of whom live with severe physical challenges, cycled 102 miles.
