Green-fingered shoppers gave a financial boost to a sight loss charity after it suffered in the coronavirus lockdown.

Volunteers and staff from Vision Norfolk collected nearly £510 over two days from customers at Taverham Garden Centre on Fir Covert Road.

Rob Collins, a fundraiser from Vision Norfolk, based on Beckham Place in Norwich, said: "Along with most organisations in the charitable sector, our income has been seriously hit by our inability to undertake fundraising activities for much of the last year, just as demand for our services has peaked. 

"We rely totally on the generosity of the people of Norfolk, and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who gave so generously at the weekend."
