Norfolk West Norfolk MP  James Wild paid a visit to a charity he raised more than £2,000 for after taking part in this year’s London Marathon.

Little Discoverers, which supports pre-school children with physical delays and disabilities, welcomed the MP last week to its Dutton Pavilion base.

He spent time learning about the activities the children take part in to help their learning, development and communication.  

Katie Fisher, chairman of Little Discoverers, said: “We were very excited to welcome James and hear how the London Marathon went. 

“His example of taking part in sports is a great one, as being involved in sports will be one of the best ways for children at Little Discoverers to keep fit, have fun, and feel part of the community they live in during the coming years.”

Mr Wild heard about the charity’s proposed plans to build a hub at Lynnsport, King’s Lynn, which would support the development of adapted sports and also give the charity a dedicated space to carry on their work of almost 18 years.

Speaking after the visit Mr Wild said: “It was a pleasure to meet the Little Discoverers children and see the progress they are making. 

“There were lots of smiles and I was impressed by the methods Katie and the team use. 

“Before the race the children sent by a lovely good luck card and I’m pleased to have been able to help them with the support of local people.”

Mr Wild raised £5,673 from this marathon run helping two other West Norfolk charities.
