We at the FRN would like to congraluate the team at Age UK Norfolk for the opening of their new store!
The new shop has been opened for a little over two weeks now so we asked Paul Ward, Retail Development Manager, to say a few words about what they did and how it went...

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Martin Brassington. Martin had been the manager of Essential Needs in Harrogate for over 20 years, but sadly was struck down by cancer and had been unable to work at all this year. He was committed to Essential Needs and was well respected by everyone he came into contact with and worked tirelessly to help those who sought help from the charity. Over the years that amounts to thousands of individuals and families who were on hard times, but were treated with fairness dignity and respect.
