Mr Catchpole will be picking up the pace in an attempt to raise £400 for the historic building, which he says is "the most beautiful".

The marathon man first came across Gorleston Pavilion in 2007.

"It was and still is such a stunning building," Mr Catchpole said.

""Don't let jewels like this in Norfolk go to ruin, so help me and my fellow fundraisers build a massive total.

"Every penny counts."
