People from Dereham have taken part in an awareness walk to raise the profile of disabled people in their community.

Friday's charity walk was led by families and staff from the Dereham Resource Centre, a local disability education and day service.

It was part of an initiative by national disability charity Sense, which saw hundreds of people across England, Northern Ireland and Wales taking to the streets for Deafblind Awareness Week between June 24-30.

Tessa Wallis, education services manager, said: 'It was fantastic to be able to take part in this exciting event for Deafblind Awareness Week, and taking to the streets of Dereham. It was a great opportunity to raise awareness of the users of the Dereham Resource Centre, and of people in the community with disability.'
