A grant of £500 will allow a running club to be more inclusive by installing a new disabled toilet.

Bungay Black Dog Running Club has been awarded the money as part of the latest round of grants from Central England Co-operative's Community Dividend Fund (CDF).

In total, £3,453 has been awarded to three good causes across Norfolk and Suffolk which are aiming to improve the lives of those living with disabilities.

"Having this facility will make a huge difference," said Jayne Capps-Jenner, chairman of the club.

"We will be able to expand our membership of disabled people and offer them an equal opportunity to take part in regular activity."

The CDF hands out grants of between £100 and £5,000 to a wide range of applicants every three months. To apply for funding, visit the Co-operative's website.
