The small team has been playing pool on a table set up underneath the clock tower in North Walsham's Market Place since 4pm yesterday (Saturday, September 29).

Robert Scammell, Shelby Evans and Callum Tartt, who are all from the town, and Phil McCormick, who is from Bacton, are undertaking the challenge.

Visitors can join in by putting some money towards the cause, and then they get to play until they don't pot anything on a shot.

They are raising money for the League of Friends of the North Walsham Cottage Hospital, and 20-year-old Sophie Kennedy, from Stalham, who has a kidney disorder.
