Around 40 people took part in a scenic charity 10k run to raise funds for the Magpie Centre for Riding for the Disabled.

However, organisers admitted they were a little disappointed with the turnout at the event,  held at Wallington Hall, South Runcton on Sunday.

John Hodson, chairman of the  fundraising committee for Trinity Rotary Club of King’s Lynn, said: “As it’s in the third year we would’ve like to have seen fifty-plus people take part. 

“But it went really well and the participants seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. And just over £500 was raised.

“We didn’t have any adverse comments at all from participants and they said the event was well run and it was a good course.” 

The event, which was organised jointly with the Magpie Centre, saw participants of all abilities run or walk on farm tracks and wooded areas.

Mr Hodson added: “We did enjoy it, we still get a buzz from organising it. In time, it just needs to be built up.”
