Gardeners at a Great Yarmouth skills and activity centre have been boosted by a blooming wonderful donation.
Centre 81 has been gifted a new wheelbarrow by the Great Yarmouth and Gorleston In Bloom committee.
The centre regularly takes part the annual In Bloom initiative, helping to brighten the borough.
Gardening, led by John Prime and Richard Edwards, is one of the activities done by members who have a range of disabilities caused by illness or trauma.
Centre 81 chief executive Diana Staines said: 'Members and volunteers enjoy going to the garden centre to choose plants, then being involved in planting and growing them. And it makes the surroundings nice for everyone using the centre.
'We are really fortunate that we have two volunteers who enjoy looking after the garden for us – and very grateful for the support of In Bloom.'
