A town centre charity shop branch has closed its doors in Dereham for the final time.
Sense, based on Market Place, closed for good at the end of February.
The shop first opened in the market town back in 2015.
A spokesperson from Sense confirmed the closure this week.
They said: 'The Sense shop on Market Place, in Dereham, closed at the end of February, having served the area for the last five years.
'We'd like to thank the community for the support it gave to the shop, which helped us raise vital funds to support children and adults with complex disabilities.
'The closest Sense shop is now based in Norwich.'
