Schools, parish councils and a doctor's surgery close to Norwich have gratefully received the gift of 400 free visors between them, donated by a Norfolk-based company.

Loddon-based Panel Graphic decided to give out 20,000 of their visors to the Norfolk Association of Local Councils shortly before Christmas, with Hethersett Parish Council receiving 400.

Stephen Slack, the council's vice-chairman, took on the responsibility of distributing them in the community.

He said: "Because it was fairly hurried and difficult we were tempted to say it wasn't practical. But instead of focussing on what we can't do, we wanted to do what we could do.

"It was nice to be able to do a small bit to help."
