The Lowestoft and Waveney branch of the Samaritans will be open its new shop tomorrow.

The charity is moving from its current shop in High Street, Lowestoft, to larger premises next door, where it can display more of its stock and potentially raise more money to support its work.

The move has been prompted by an increase in demand for the Samaritans service in Waveney.

The doors to the shop, at 99a High Street, will be officially opened at noon by Lowestoft mayor June Ford. Refreshments, provided by Asda, will be served.

A spokesman for the charity said: 'Our new shop Sams by the Sea has been designed with a theme around our town's location.
