The Charles Burrell Centre, in Thetford, is home to businesses and charities in the former high school on Staniforth Road.

Opening in 2013 the toilets remained unchanged since its time as a school.

Following a grant from Power to Change, a branch of lottery funding, and on-going fundraising efforts, the centre is looking to redevelop its main toilets.

Chief executive of Charles Burrell Centre, Terry Jermy, said: "Our toilets have been in need of refurbishment for sometime. They've not changed since the days that the school was open and therefore the toilets are not designed for the various different groups of people that now use the building."
