A Thorpe St Andrew supermarket has donated T-shirts to people being supported by a domestic abuse charity.
Sainsbury’s, on Pound Lane, provided the clothing to Leeway, which operates safe houses across Norfolk for domestic abuse victims.
The charity’s chief executive Mandy Procter said the T-shirts were a “fabulous resource” and would make a real difference to people leaving abusive relationships.
She said: “Having a stock of brand new T-shirts is a fabulous resource.
“Many of the women and children using our safe houses leave abusive relationships in a hurry and they will often arrive at Leeway with very few clothes or possessions
“We also support men leaving abusive relationships and provide temporary accommodation for them and their children.”
Leeway is a local charity offering advice, support and information to victims of domestic abuse.
