It was a frosty morning, but Leeway supporters gathering in Catton Park on Sunday were in good spirits as they warmed up for a fundraising charity fun run. Over 60 people took part in our Leeâ€™d the Way charity relay and they raised Â£428 through entry fees and sponsorship.
As you can see from the images, parts of the grounds of the park were still frozen even at midday when the runners took their marks for the start of the race. The runners were of all ages and abilities, but all united in a determination to have a good time and raise some money for a good cause. Councillor Judy Leggett (pictured left) selected Leeway as the chosen charity for her term as Chairman of Broadland District Council and helped organise the event.

The team relay event was won by the Norwich Road Runners who completed 23 laps of the park between them!
