A social enterprise in Thetford has offered a helping hand to a charity which suffered a theft.

Norwich-based BUILD provides leisure and learning opportunities for adults and young people with sensory, physical and learning disabilities.

The charity’s garden is an important feature but was vandalised and had a number of plants stolen.

News spread of the incident and The Horticulture Industry Scheme (THIS), based at the Charles Burrell Centre, decided to donated a number of plants.

THIS helps ex-offenders find employment opportunities by teaching them transferable skills through gardening.

Georgina Keatley, of THIS, said: “It is important to us that community organisations help each other and that we share resources when we can. We were very upset to hear about the distress suffered by the users of the BUILD Charity and were glad to help.”
