The folks at Centre 81 love a good jigsaw - and they get through them fast.

Some nimble-fingered members are now completing 1,000-piece jigsaws in a couple of days, and the Great Yarmouth charity has issued an appeal for more puzzles.

Chief executive Diana Staines said: “We would love to receive any unwanted puzzles, particularly the large ones of 1,000 pieces or more. They are extremely popular with members, who currently find themselves doing the same jigsaws over and over again. It would be great if we could give them a few new challenges.”

Centre 81’s skills and activities centre has a membership of about 70 adults with physical or other disabilities, who undertake a range of activities at the centre and in the community.

The charity also operates a community transport service. Its fleet of ten fully-accessible minibuses are a familiar sight in the borough, serving more than 700 members who can’t access traditional public transport.

These include people with a disability, elderly people and those who are unable to use public transport.

Jigsaws can be left at Centre 81’s headquarters at Tar Works Road or The Mercury office at 169 King Street, Great Yarmouth, as well as TMS Media’s offices at 1 Viking Road, Gapton Hall Industrial Estate, Great Yarmouth.
