When the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB) were told they had to leave their previous centre in King’s Lynn, it came out of the blue, but chief executive Gina Dormer said it has ended up being a blessing.

Ms Dormer said: “Opening the new centre and creating a bigger space means we can offer more facilities to people with visual impairment, their families, their carers. So we’re looking to throw open our doors and give a meeting space opportunity for people as well as providing equipment and advise and access to additional support in the community.

“What turned into what probably could have been quite a tragic situation, has turned into something very positive.”

The new centre at Dundee Court, Hamburg Way, King’s Lynn, is fully equipped with a wide range of products suitable for the visually impaired, including talking clocks and watches, magnifiers, CCTV’s and kitchen equipment.
