Fakenham junior school spend friday raising money for Children in Need
Crazy hats, colourful flags and marching children - it must mean that Children in Need is back.
Sponsored by friends and families, children at Fakenham Junior School took part in a five-kilometre ramble to the sounds of Baby Shark and The Proclaimers.
The school was inspired by Countryfile and the actions of Ethan, a young man who suffers from Cerebral Palsy who walked six-kilometres on the programme.
Year five class teacher Tracey Johnson, who organised the event, said: "The children love being involved with Children in Need. They can see it on television, in the papers.
