The motto for this year's Children in Need is 'Do your thing', and for Banham 11-year-old Louis Hedge that means only one thing - Lego.

Louis, who attends Wymondham High Academy, raised £211 by doing a sponsored Lego build.

He said he was proud of his efforts. Louis said: 'This is the fourth year I have organised a sponsored event by myself for Children In Need.

I love building Lego, so I thought it would be a great way to raise some money.'

The Children in Need telethon takes place tomorrow from 7pm and will be broadcast on BBC One.
