More children have been able to learn about the importance of Norfolk's wildlife thanks to the fundraising of an outgoing council chairman. 

Clive Stockton, who has been chairman of North Norfolk District Council for the past two years, donated £2,831 from fundraisers and £210 from his own pocket to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, which was his chosen charity while in the council's ceremonial top job. 

Annabel Hill, the trust's senior education officer, said: “Thanks to Clive and the council’s kind support of our education work with schools, we were able to engage and highlight the importance of Norfolk’s wildlife to more children.

"Not only do we aim to provide fun and educational sessions but inspire children about the wildlife which can be found on their doorstep, in the hope children will value wildlife now and in the future.”
