A Beccles school has introduced a new support scheme to help families with the cost of living.

Albert Pye Community Primary School has opened a New to You Shed.

It is open daily from 8.30am to 9am and has a variety of items for all families at the school from uniforms to coats and shoes as well as basic canned and dried food items, sanitary products and household items.
