A group of West Norfolk youngsters have a number of fundraising exploits planned in August to raise money for Red Wellies.

The members, who consist of a number 16 and 17-year-olds, are undertaking the events as part of their social action project for the National Citizenship Scheme.

Jade Kite said: “Red Wellies are a worthwhile charity who don’t get much recognition, so we wanted to raise money and awareness.”

Red Wellies aim to promote and raise awareness of brain tumours.

So far the charity have enough funds to provide four pieces of crucial equipment for the centre which can help bring the knowledge and understanding of why brain tumours effect so many.

Though the NCS, the group’s aim is to help increase this fund and help improve the research which can be done.

Fundraising activities so far include a sponsored coffee morning at the South Lynn Community Centre on Monday and a bucket collection day on Sunday, August 23.

This comes on the back of a sponsored walk from Hunstanton to Burnham Deepdale on Wednesday. A bucket collection at Asda is also planned by the group, who hope to raise around £500.
