A playgroup has been given another hand to put right damage caused by vandals.

The Diss branch of Hughes Electrical donated a printer and CD player to the Eye Opportunity Group following a spate of damage in May.

Hughes manager Nick Boast said: "Like many, we were shocked to hear what had happened at the playschool, as we know what a great job the team do.

"We see ourselves as very much part of the community, so were delighted to offer some equipment to help the group get back to normal as quickly as possible."

Sanchia Brandreth, Eye Opportunity Group manager, said: "As a result of the vandalism, we struggled to offer the services we should to the families and children that rely on our support."

In June, the Rotary Club of Diss and District donated £500 to the almost entirely self-funded group, which stayed open thanks to staff and volunteers, providing a play space for children with learning needs.
