The show features more than 90 paintings, prints and sculptures, with subjects ranging from the beach and countryside, to the area's wildlife.

It is part of a series of personal fundraising challenges organised by cafe staff members Chelsie Stewart and Sam Rose, who are also planning to run the Norwich 10k in July and walk the National Three Peaks Challenge in August.

Ms Stewart said raising funds for charity was an enjoyable way of giving something back to the community.
