A team of students and staff members from a sixth form college are getting ready to take on a half marathon for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
The students from Dereham Sixth Form will take part in the City of Norwich Half Marathon, which takes place on April 15 at Norfolk Showground.
They will be doing it to raise money for the air ambulance, a charity that provides a helicopter emergency medical service to the people of East Anglia.
A crew from the charity will also be visiting the college on March 27 to meet the students and give them a talk on what air ambulance does and how they can be supported.
The charity is based at Norwich airport and since launching in 2009 they have supported the emergency services on more than 20,000 incidents.
If you would like to support the students, you can contribute to their fundraising on their webpage.
