Primary school pupils inspired by civil rights activists have raised much-needed funds for a town's foodbank.
Fry class at Caston Church of England Primary Academy managed to make more than £100 for Watton Foodbank by taking on a sponsored walk.
The group of four to six-year-olds walked ten laps, nearly 2.5 miles, around the school field.
After learning about American civil rights activist, Rosa Parks, and female education advocate, Malala Yousafzai, the youngsters decided they wanted to make their own positive change.
Sarah Disney, executive headteacher at the school, said: "The children wanted to see if they could make their own change in the world and help other people.
