The Grange in Cressingham is opening its doors for people across Norfolk to showcase the work they do for people who have survived traumas, such as torture, extreme violence or have fled persecution.

The event includes a tour of their permaculture site and opportunities to meet the people behind the project. In the morning there will also be the opportunity to find out how the project is organised and financed through the annual general meeting (AGM).

Chris McGaw, live-in coordinator at The Grange, said: 'Ben Margolis and Sophie North started the project in 2012 to meet the need for a therapeutic and educational rural environment for survivors of torture, asylum seekers and refugees rebuilding their lives in the UK.

'The Open Day is an opportunity to welcome in the wider community to find out what we do here at The Grange,'

It takes place on May 6, between 10.30am and 4.30pm at The Grange in Great Cressingham. People can register to attend via Eventbrite.
