One of Norfolk's oldest charities is to celebrate its 50th birthday with a 'Golden Garden Party'.
Norwich-based Build, which provides social, leisure and learning opportunities for people with disabilities, will mark the milestone at the city's Bishop's Gardens on Sunday, June 4.
The party, from 1pm to 5pm, will feature tea and cakes, giant horse-racing, Jenga and Connect Four games and music by string ensemble, the Wensum Quartet.
James Kearns, Build's chief executive, said: 'This is a special honour for us in our special year as we celebrate 50 years of service to the county of Norfolk and our thanks go to Bishop Graham and Julie James for allowing us to celebrate in their gardens.'
Each year, the charity provides more than 200 activities for people aged 16 and above with disabilities.
You may also want to watch:
They include trampolining, swimming and bowling, gardening and country walking, a weekly social club, a Sunday lunch club and the 'Fuse' party nights run in association with the city's Mercy XS Nightclub.
Admission to the garden party is £3 per adult, wheelchair users and children under 16 go free.
