Two volunteers from Norwich & Peterborough Building Society visited Anchor’s Clayburn Court care home on Clayburn Road and presented a cheque for £500 to the home.

Sheila Fielding, home manager at Clayburn Court, said: “It has been fantastic to have the Norwich & Peterborough volunteers here with us, and a great opportunity for them to become part of our little community.

“The donation will go towards creating a reminiscence and hobby area for our residents.”
