More than a hundred children with the most complex needs in Norfolk have been taking part in a Captain Sir Tom style walking challenge to raise money for charity.

The pupils from Clare School in Norwich dressed as superheroes as they began the cumulative five hundred mile attempt today.

The school is hoping to raise £500 for a small charity called the Soul Foundation in Norwich which has provided pupils and families with food parcels throughout the pandemic. 

The school has received more than 2,500 boxes during the last year, providing over 10,000 meals. 

The pupils themselves chose to thank Soul Foundation because "they have been super heroes to the pupils and families at The Clare School."

The children walked around Eaton Park in their class bubbles and were socially distanced from each 'bubble' taking part.
