A partially sighted mother is hosting a fundraising coffee morning for the charity which has helped rebuild her life.

Carol Reil, 49, from Meadow Way in Hellesdon, is putting on the social event for the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB) on Monday, March 6.

Mrs Reil, who was registered as partially sighted in 2002, said: 'The NNAB is like an extended family and has given me my independence and life back.'

As well as receiving support from her 14-year-old son and husband, Mrs Reil takes part in arts, crafts and flower arranging classes at the charity's Norwich base on Magpie Road.

She also volunteers for the NNAB by collecting raffle prizes and doing administrative work.
