The extra mile just wasn't enough for staff at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn.....so they opted for 100 instead!

The team of colleagues took on the 100 Mile Challenge, to walk  - or run! - the distance between July and December for the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Between them, they raised 250 pounds, with each participant receiving a medal from RAF Marham.

Among those presenting the medals were Warrant Officer Graham Spark MBE, Flt Sgt Terry Norman and Community Support Advisor Maydie Smith.

Warrant Officer Spark said: 

"Thank you very much for taking part in the challenge. We run the community support team at RAF Marham, which looks after our families and we are always looking for funding to provide that support."

Emma Harrison, Patient Experience Lead at the hospital, said: 

"The RAF Benevolent Fund is a charity that is very close to our hearts as we have a number of service leavers and relatives of RAF Marham personnel who work here at the hospital, so we were only too happy to raise money for such a worthy cause.

"We are thrilled to have raised £250 and we will be looking to do more challenges in the future, including a longer challenge between April and December this year."
