So much more than just a new home

It's a new home but it's so much more than just a roof over their heads in King's Lynn.

Purfleet Trust moved into the biggest facility as part of their 25th anniversary.

The charity supports homeless people in our county.

Special anniversary

KLFM has been celebrating the amazing work of Purfleet all week to mark their special anniversary.

Now we're hearing from the woman who runs it all.

Chief Executive Paula Hall rarely takes centre stage and usually shines a light on the incredible work of her volunteers and staff.

But without her - it would be hard to see how the Purfleet Trust would have made it this far.

Paula told KLFM:

"We had a couple of years back when we were uncertain of our future.

"But I can say with confidence that we absolutely not in that position anymore.

"We can enhance our services with extra funding so we can only go from strength to strength really.

"We make assumptions that everyone can use a computer but that's definitely not the case.

"So we have people in IT to help clients to access benefits, housing and apply for jobs.

"Everything is done online now."
