A Norfolk village is set to be taken over by more than a hundred giant teddy bears on Saturday as part of a two week fundraising event.

The life-sized straw filled creations will be popping up across Great Ellingham, near Attleborough, for the village's annual teddy bear trail.

Organisers are promising some topical giant bears this year, which is set to raise thousands of pounds for East Anglia's Children's Hospices and the church.

The festival was the brainchild of local resident Ann Milner six years ago and has since gone from strength to strength. Villagers will also be holding garage sales on Saturday .

Trail leaflets will be available for a £1 at the post office or at the Crown pub.
