Gifts are flooding in for homeless people in West Norfolk.

Pia Cawston, who runs Massingham-based Pia Plum Designs, delivered a van load of gifts including clothing, food and toiletries to the King’s Lynn-based Purfleet Trust.

“We did a shout out, we did a thing at the shop saying Purfleet Trust were in desperate need of toiletries and people just went for it,” she said.

Lucy Shaw, health and wellbeing centre manager with the trust, said: “We’ll use all these gifts in clients’ Christmas bags. A lot of these guys have no family or support network, so kind gifts like this show they’re not forgotten, they do matter.”
A Hoodlum’s Ball is being staged in aid of the trust at St Nicholas Chapel on Friday, December 1. There will be live music, virtual horse racing, hog roast and bar from 7.30pm - 12am. Tickets are priced £10 on the door.
