It started as one man's prescription to provide dignity and support for the elderly and vulnerable.
More than three decades later Aylsham Care Trust (ACT) founder Rees Coghlan's pioneering legacy is being celebrated by those he inspired.
The charity is marking its 31st anniversary at Aylsham Town Hall on April 20. The event will include a series of tributes to the 91-year-old former pharmacist's pivotal role in the trust's development.
The Coghlan family gifted land enabling the ACT centre to open in 2012 as part of the St Michael's Care Complex.
Along with a health centre and pharmacy, St Michael's Court care home and a housing with care scheme it forms part of a leading national example of quality provision for elderly people.
