Seven staff from educational toy and learning aid company Learning Resources have taken part in the local Samaritans' annual charity fundraising bike ride from Sandringham.

This year's Brazilian fancy dress theme inspired the team to don an exotic rainforest avian look for the ride.

"This is becoming a fixture in the Learning Resources' social calendar," said Dennis Blackmore, MD of the firm. "It's our fourth year and we have come runners up in the fancy dress competition in the last two years, so next year we'll be bringing out the big guns in an all out effort to win.

"Aside from the huge amount of fun and laughs enjoyed by all that take part, it's also raising money for a very worthy cause.

"I'm delighted that our small effort secured over £400 for the Samaritans, which I hope will help them to continue to provide help and advice to those most in need."

The Learning Resources parrots flapped their way around the 14-mile route, starting and finishing at Sandringham, taking in Shernborne, Fring and Sedgeford along the way.
