A charity which supports people in Norfolk with visual impairments has become the latest to receive the royal seal of approval from the King.

Vision Norfolk, previously known as the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind, has announced King Charles as a patron of the organisation.

The announcement has been made to mark the anniversary of the King's royal coronation.

The monarch follows in the footsteps of his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, who was also a patron of the charity prior to her death in September 2022.

Karen Norton, chairman of trustees at Vision Norfolk said: "We are enormously grateful he has chosen to show his support for the important work we do.

"A Royal Patronage is the highest endorsement a charity can receive and is enormously helpful when it comes to attracting support from people in Norfolk."

She added that the continuation of the patronage was a "great honour".

The late Queen's previous patronage of the charity once saw her pay a visit to Norwich in 2010, when she opened its Bradbury Activity Centre in the city.
