Homeless people have been supplied with warm clothing for the cold winter months thanks to the initiative of a community group and business.

Swaffham lions were contacted by Artichoke, a shop in the town, requesting to find a home for scarves and hats they wished to donate.

Tony Lakey, Swaffham Lions welfare chairman, took the donations to the Purfleet Trust homeless charity in Lynn.
