Staff and volunteers from Lowestoft’s Sense shop led dozens of participants from the store’s London Road North base to Claremont Pier.

The walk, on Saturday, June 24, was part of a national initiative by Sense which saw hundreds of people across England, Northern Ireland and Wales taking to the streets for Deafblind Awareness Week, from June 24 to June 30.

Kim Stranbrook, assistant shop manager and leader of the walk, said: “It was a fun and healthy way of us coming together to raise the profile of Sense services and disabled people in the community.

“We’re already looking forward to next year and hope we can grow our numbers.”

Lowestoft’s Sense shop helps generate essential funds that support people who are deafblind, have sensory impairments or complex needs to live more independent lives.
