More then £2,000 has been raised across the region for the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB) through flag days and street collections.

The largest amount of money raised at a collection was at Sainsbury's on Queens Road, Norwich, raising £606.63 over three days at the start of April.

Easter weekend proved a success as at Taverham Garden Centre £175.90 was donated and at B&Q in Norwich £510.18 was raised across the weekend.

The total amount raised in April was £2,194.18.

Events and community officer Donna Minto said: 'It is incredible to keep receiving large donations considering the overall decline in donations. It is great to be able to collect in stores and support the blind and allow them to keep independent.'

The charity is currently making improvements to its residential care home which is home to 30 residents. A spa bathroom and summer house are being created.
