Jack, a Shetland pony who has been touring Norfolk support groups and care homes, joined Age UK Norwich for the morning, to bring a smile to the faces of those attending.

While Jack drew the crowds in, many stayed to learn more about dementia, pick up information, and take a look at the reminiscence display featuring items from years gone by.

Norwich is one of Greater Anglia's pilot stations which are aiming to become dementia friendly and members of station staff are being trained as Dementia Friends.
