A complex needs charity has swapped its annual trip with a week of celebrations around town, raising money to support its users.
All were welcomed to events held around Fakenham in aid of Fitzroy, a charity based in the town supporting children and adults with complex needs.
The group headed to Millennium Park for a sporting games day, and the next day attendees put on their best fancy dress. On Thursday, the group held a small carnival in their sensory garden, after barbecue in the sun.
Will Thompson, deputy manager, said: "It has been very enjoyable, and the staff are knackered from it. It's the first time we've done this, but we'd definitely do it again.
"I can't believe how many have come along, we've be packed. We've had maybe 100, 200 visitors? It has absolutely been a success."
