POLICE pedal power has helped raise funds for one West Norfolk Church.

Police Community Support Officer Chris Lorraine joined church-goers from St Mary's Church, West Walton, on a sponsored cycle ride around West Norfolk churches to raise funds for the Norfolk Churches Trust.

PCSO Lorraine from the Terrington Safer Neighbourhood Team decided to get involved after being approached by members of the neighbourhood church, which is set to provide an improved public venue for members of the community, including the neighbourhood police team.

During the event PCSO Lorraine clocked up 45 miles on his police bike and visited seven West Norfolk churches.

The money raised will be sent to the Norfolk Churches Trust - which has previously funded repairs at St Mary's - with 50% returned to the church nominated by the cyclist, in this case St Mary's.
