A CHARITY festival combining sport, music and live family entertainment took place yesterday to raise funds for a care centre for the terminally ill.

The first ever Embrace festival at Yarmouth Racecourse got off to a sprinting start with a three-mile fun run and the rest of the day was filled with entertainment from fashion shows to live performances by local bands and members of the Potters Leisure Resort entertainment team.

The festival, which incorporated the James Paget University Hospital Trust's 18th summer fete, was opened by Lady Knollys, deputy Lord Lieutenant of Norfolk.

All of the proceeds will go to Palliative Care East's �1.5m appeal to build a special care centre for terminally ill patients in the grounds of the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston.
