A charity that works with people living with disabilities in Great Yarmouth has received a surprise donation from a building contractor.
Centre 81 received the donation of £25,000 from Beccles-based contractors Ovamill after its work 'touched the hearts' of the company's directors.
Diana Staines, chief executive of Centre 81, said: 'This fantastic donation came completely out of the blue and is most welcome from two aspects. Firstly it is a brilliant boost to our funds. But equally important, it's a touching acknowledgement of the work we do from people in the business community.
Centre 81 runs a skills and activities centre in Tar Works Road, Great Yarmouth, for about 70 members with a wide range of physical and sensory disabilities.
Mark Everard, of Ovamill, said: 'We admire the amazing work of Centre 81, and the commitment of staff and volunteers who make such a difference to people's lives.
