A charity which helps thousands of people recover from alcohol and drug misuse in Norfolk and Suffolk is holding a fun day.
The Matthew Project, which helps armed forces veterans with substance abuse issues through its Outside the Wire project, is holding a free Norfolk Veterans Family Open Fun Day.
It is open to anyone and running at the TA Centre, 325 Aylsham Road, Norwich, on September 16, 10am-4pm. Parking on the site is limited.
The event will include funfair rides, a tombola, raffles, craft stalls, services and a band military display.
Outside the Wire started in 2013 from a base in Cromer with a few families of war veterans.
It has now expanded with 46 people receiving intensive help across the region.
Support includes one-to-one sessions, family support, and free treatment services.
