A women's charity is celebrating a successful start to the year including breaking a Guinness World Record.
The Blossom Charity, based in Eye, aims to increase confidence in women and young people in the region.
It took the Guinness World Record for the longest fashion show from US giants Cotton Inc and PEOPLE magazine after organising a 30-hour event in 2017, with the results announced this January.
Raising £24,000, the Woolverstone Hall event featured 1,080 outfits.
The charity has also been announced as the community partner of the OVO Energy Women's Tour cycle race. The Blossom Road Trip will see the Blossom team follow the same route as the cyclists, delivering empowering workshops to 500 women over six days.
