An estimated 30 people enjoyed coffee and cake event at the Piece of Mind Day Centre, in Austin Street, Lynn.

The morning was organised to encourage people to talk about mental health as part of the national Time for Change campaign, which aims to end discrimination against people living with mental health problems, and raised around £40 for West Norfolk Mind funds.

Intensive Support worker Josh Elms had not only organised the coffee morning but had been busy baking the delicious cakes.

He said: “I would like to thank everyone for coming along and giving their support to the event.”

During the session furniture store manager Jem Whiley underwent a sponsored head shave. His previously shoulder length hair was shaved off by his sons Craig and Jame.

And his efforts have raised £400 to go towards the £10,000 costs of buying a new box van for the charity.

Fundraising for the van has now reached the half-way mark and the charity would be eager to hear from anyone who could provide help with further funding.
