Nead has been based in Norwich for 30 years and operates a similar We are Norfolk cultural education scheme in King's Lynn.

Sandy Betlem, NEAD co-ordinator, said: “We are very excited to be rolling out We are Norfolk to the Yarmouth area.

“The project has already been a huge success in King's Lynn. Yarmouth with its diverse population is a great place to celebrate multi-cultural Britain.”

Yarmouth's We are Norfolk scheme will be launched at Edward Worlledge Junior School on October 21.

Any schools interested in taking part or any one who to help wants to educate youngsters about multicultural issues can contact Nead by visiting www.nead.org.uk
