DIAL Great Yarmouth

An charity is holding its AGM and is inviting members of the public to attend.

Disability advice organisation DIAL Great Yarmouth will be holding its AGM on Friday, January 26 at 11am in the Northgate Room of Great Yarmouth Library.

There will be a guest speaker followed by light refreshments.

Please arrive for 10.45am to ensure a prompt start. All are welcome to attend.

The charity received support from the Lovewell Blake Fund to open up a new charity shop, to help support its operational costs following a move to larger premises in the town.

A spokesman for the charity said: “The new location is more prominent within the town and has seen an increase in income due to the rise in both footfall and good quality donations – with the increased number of residents accessing the advice centre they will have the opportunity to purchase good quality clothes and household items at affordable prices.”
