Chloe Smith MP visited the offices of the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind on Magpie Road.

The Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB) was founded in 1805 and is the one of the oldest voluntary blind societies in the UK. It aims to provide accommodation and care for blind members of the community through a variety of services. It also has a number of educational and recreational facilities around the county including an eleven-strong team of community workers providing home assistance. NNAB relies heavily on its 250 volunteers across Norfolk and organises many fundraising events throughout the year.

The charity's appeal to build a new activity centre has raised £1.3m and is going strong for the final £200,000. If you would like to assist the charity by 'buying a brick', please see its website at:

Chloe said: "I am very impressed with NNAB's existing facilities, especially its Equipment and Information Centre, and with its passionate team of staff. The charity does a very good job for blind people of all ages in Norwich and Norfolk."
