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.
The Black Dog Running Club, based at Pinhow Street in Ditchingham, is trying to ensure prospective members with disabilities are catered for.
"Having this facility will make a huge difference," said Jayne Capps-Jenner, chairman of the club.
