Youngsters delighted to don Canary colours
A SMALL corner of Zambia turned yellow and green last month when locals were presented with Norwich City kit by a group of youngsters from Norfolk.
Led by the Club’s marketing assistant Chris Reeve, the group of seven teaching volunteers visited two schools and a local orphanage in the country’s capital, Lusaka.

“The beaming smiles the kids gave us after receiving their new kits made the effort so worth it,” said Chris.
“It’s nice to see such a positive response to the Norwich City colours – it’s important for the Club to reach out to audiences all over the world.
“It really made their day and I don’t think they’ll be taking their shirts off for a while!”
The group, also including Louise Evans, Michael Manson, Andrew Carrier, Rose Dean, Amy Ellis, Greg Cooke and Hannah Whitlock, were immediately inspired to do as much as possible to help after experiencing the challenging living conditions of the children that live in the ghettos and compounds of Zambia.
