Dozens of good causes are set to benefit from the annual Lynn Lions fun day in Lynn Walks this Sunday.

Now in its 16th year, the free event, traditionally held on the first Sunday of June, will offer a packed programme of live entertainment, plus around 60 stalls.

Peter Dixon, the club’s activities co-ordinator, estimated that at least 20 local charities and community groups would benefit from cash raised on their own stalls.

He said: “It’s one of the few free events provided in the area. It’s an event for the whole family to come along and have a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

“What they spend is up to them, but I can assure them what they spend will go to very good causes.”

Any money that the club makes from the day will go towards meeting the estimated £3,000 costs of staging the event each year.

The fun day will start at 12.30pm with the customary parade down the Broadwalk, which will be led this year by the City of Norwich Pipe Band.

The band, who are scheduled to give two performances in the main arena during the afternoon, will be followed by around 300 youngsters representing a host of local organisations.

The programme of entertainment in the main arena includes performances from the Streetwise dance group, the Earthquakes cheerleading group, Kelly’s Dive Crew and the Lavender Hill Mob.

There will also be birds of prey displays by the Norfolk Owl Charity and a drill demonstration by army cadets.
