Great Yarmouth charity Willow Tree Garden has received a plaque to mark a £8,000 grant from Tesco with funds raised from a 5p levy on shopping bags.
In 2016 Tesco's Bags of Help initiative gave the money to the charity, which used the funding to set about building a chicken run to allow wheelchair users to feed the chickens more easily, and specialist reinforced benches to provide the perfect spot to watch the chickens in their new home.
Project runners Heather Sayer and Clare Winter have now unveiled a plaque to mark the success of the project.
The plaque was donated by Tesco as a permanent record that the project was chosen and backed by the local community.
Lindsey Crompton, head of community at Tesco, said: 'It is wonderful to see this project come to fruition, showing first-hand how a Bags of Help grant can help transform local communities.'
