A north Norfolk window cleaner has helped add a bit of sparkle to the lives of seriously ill children, by taking part in a 5km race while being pelted with paint.

Ady Willett, from Bacton, signed up for the annual Colour Run Obstacle Rush, held at Aintree racecourse, and, with the help of his wife Lynn, left notes for his customers asking for their support.

Mr Willett, who covers an area stretching from Bacton to Cromer, completed his challenge with his daughter Danielle, raising £1,030 for the children’s charity Make-A-Wish, which, since being founded in 1986, has supported 12,000 youngsters living with critical illnesses.

Thanking his customers for their generosity, Mr Willett said: “We thought that this was a great way to raise some money for such a worthy charity whilst having a lot of fun.”
