It comes following Iris Clark's announcement when she celebrated with her team two and a half decades of successful trading at the Break branch, based on High Street.

The shop was first opened in 1992 by Norman Lamb, and some of the staff have volunteered there ever since.

Mr Lamb visited the shop to congratulate the staff. He said: 'These are very devoted people who give their own time to support this charity, which is important for our future generations.'

Break retail area manager, Jeff Watts, also added that Stalham's Break shop was a 'success story' and the staff were 'totally devoted' in the charity's vision to ensure children, young people and families reach their full potential and shape their own futures in a safe and creative environment.
