Workers at family burger joint raised more than £500 for charity as part of a group sky dive.

Colleagues from Zaks' authentic American-diners at Mousehold, in Norwich, and Thetford joined forces with staff and volunteers at Norwich-based children's charity Connects and Co for the leap over Beccles Airfield.

All funds from the jump are being donated to the charity, which provides emotional and practical support for children and young people who live with the effects of terminal or long-term illness, disability, mental health issues or addiction within their family.

Kathleen Smith, managing director of Blue Sky Leisure - the owner of Zaks - said: 'A number of the team enjoyed themselves so much last year, they decided to go for it again.

'It's a pretty daunting thing to do, but we're really proud of all of them for supporting such a great cause.'

Those who took part in the jump included Lily Vincent, Kelby Barrow, Harry Reilly, Rory Newstead, Oli Emes-Ellis, Keith Emes-Ellis, Adam Plumstead, Ashton Tokley and Daniel Bishop.
