Families are being urged to join in the fun at a Norfolk school's big bike for charity event on Sunday.

A 13-mile cycle ride into local countryside is the main attraction at Diss High School, with the chance to meet European lightweight boxing champion Jon Thaxton who is the sports ambassador for the day.

There is lots on offer in addition to the bike ride, which starts at 11am, including entertainment by the school soul band, bungee trampolines, bouncy castles, 'Blendavenda' smoothies made by a bicycle, beat the goalie and mini scootathon competitions, and a draw with a new bike as a star prize.

Entry forms for the cycle tour can be downloaded from the school website at www.disshigh.norfolk.sch.uk and are also available from the school office.
