An education charity which supports young people in West Norfolk has been given a free travel package by a rail operator.

Great Northern has given five free travel passes to officials of Red Balloon, which helps youngsters who are unable to stay at their school because of bullying.

Staff and students can also request passes if they need to travel to attend meetings or take part in residential trips.
