A blind woman was invited to a Fenland school to answer questions about the challenges she faces in her life.
Gill Southgate, of King’s Lynn, visited Gorefield Primary School with her guide dog Yazmin.
During her stay, she was interviewed by the school’s two thriving newspapers the Fishy News and the Tadpole Times.
She also took part in a question and answer session with the whole school.
Mrs Southgate’s visit was organised by student mentor Annie Appleby, who set up the two newspapers.
