Bus trips are part of the route to fun and fulfilment at Great Yarmouth’s Centre 81.
Many of the skills and activities sessions run for people with disabilities – from crafts and cookery to games and personal pampering - are at the charity’s Tar Works Road headquarters.
But members also head out into the community for life-enriching outings ranging from shopping trips and pub meals to swimming, sailing and bowling.
Recent trips have included visits to Highway Garden Centre and Nursery near Norwich, and fundraising singing sessions in Sainsbury’s supermarket at Great Yarmouth.
Skills and activities manager Julie Charles said: “We try to go out as much as possible. It is about people being able to do activities they like doing.
“Members decide on the activities they do and really look forward to the outings,” she added.
The trips use the centre’s fully accessible community transport minibuses.
