Norfolk Service Centre Raises £832 for Children's Charity

Our Norfolk Service Centre has donated £832 to a local charity that supports children and young people who are experiencing bereavement. The team consistently raises large sums of money, each year selecting one Norfolk-based charity as their fundraising focus. Nelson's Journey supports children and young people up to the age of 18, who have experienced the death of someone significant in their life, with a range of services including the help of Bereavement Support Workers, youth clubs, online forums where young people can talk to others in a similar situation, a free smartphone app and lots of online advice and information.

Scott Sayer, Service Manager at the depot in Norwich, said: "I'm really proud of the team - I'm fairly new in my post and so it's the first time I've been involved with the fundraising and the enthusiasm for it has blown me away. We raise money through dress down days, our popular 'chocolate shop' and a bonus ball lottery. Nelson's Journey is an amazing charity doing really good work and we know the money will go towards helping young people who are at a very difficult time in their lives."

Last year, the team raised over £900 for Teenage Cancer Trust and for 2019 they will be supporting the Norwich branch of Alzheimer's Society. We wish our colleagues at Norwich great success in their efforts this year.
