Students at Norwich's City College hosted a Dining in the Dark experience, to raise money local child bereavement charity Nelson's Journey and Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind.
The students wanted to show that senses can be heightened when you have poor or no sight.
Or that when you are bereaved, things around you change and experiences can feel different.
One of the organisers Aiden Read, 19, from Lingwood had a personal reason for supporting Nelson's Journey. He said: 'The reason why we chose to support Nelson's Journey is because they have helped me so much.
'Five years ago my cousin took his own life and I didn't know what to do, if it wasn't for the charity then I wouldn't be the strong person I am today.'
