More than 600 people took part in this year’s the Archdeacon’s Charge at Holkham Hall.
The May 7 event included a fun run - the charge itself - as well as a picnic, craft market and vintage car display in the grounds of the 18th-century country house.
Angela George, co-ordinator, said she was delighted with the response to the event.
She said: “This was a great opportunity for parishes to come together in the stunning grounds of Holkham Hall.
“It was great to see so many people at this year’s charge.
“My thanks goes to the amazing team of people who helped organise and support the day.”
The event was created by the Venerable John Ashe, former Archdeacon of Lynn, as a fun way for parishes to raise money for their church and the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).
Since it was launched in 2010, the charge has raised a total of nearly £100,000 for the EAAA.
