A husband and wife team who have millions of Lego bricks in their home will be holding a charity fundraiser with a difference.

Diane, 43, and Adrian Fletcher, 52, from Fakenham, will be auctioning off about 15 Lego scenes at Holt Hall on Saturday August 10 and Sunday August 11 between 10am-4pm.

All proceeds from the event will go towards the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).

The couple's 12-year-old son, Thomas, came up with the idea in 2011 and they held their first Lego EAAA fundraiser that year.

Just over £10,000 was raised and over 4,000 people visited the exhibition.

Mrs Fletcher said: 'All the Lego we have used has been donated by the public. It is time consuming. From the minute we come home from work to the minute we go to bed we are doing Lego.'

She said the family now owns millions of Lego bricks and added: 'It has overtaken the house. I have very little carpet left now.'
