Charity supporter Annie to bring out match ball at Carrow RoadTONIGHT’s Norwich City Community Hero is Annie Joyce representing the charity BREAK.
As fans enter Carrow Road this evening for the Leeds United match they will see volunteers collecting for the registered charity, which has been providing a diverse range of specialist residential and community based services for vulnerable children, young people and families across East Anglia, including in Norfolk, for over 40 years.
Annie, who is a keen supporter of BREAK, has helped to raise close to £20,000 for the charity to help change young lives.
Her two most important fundraisers have seen her take part in a charity calendar and run the Virgin London Marathon in 2013 – managing to complete a total of 7 miles barefoot before taking to trainers for the remainder of the distance.
Don’t forget you too can nominate a Norwich City Community Hero – is there anyone you think deserves recognition for their community efforts or a personal achievement? Please contact the Club via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout the season the Club is celebrating the good work that local people do in their community, whether that’s in the emergency services or armed forces (past and present), carers or charity champions, super fans or the region's sporting heroes, we’ll be celebrating it before every match.
Ahead of every home match, Norwich City will invite a deserving community-minded individual to be a ‘Community Hero’ and place the match ball onto a special plinth ready for the referee and players to emerge from the tunnel and collect it for the game.
