We celebrate Riverside Leisure Centre's amazing support of the Community Sports Foundation

NORWICH City's Community Hero for the Sky Bet Championship fixture with Rotherham United will be Phil Wright - General Manager of Riverside Leisure Centre.

Phil and his team have nominated the Community Sports Foundation (CSF) as their Charity of the Year and during 2014. They have taken part in fundraising events such as the Zip Wire over Carrow Road and the Coastal Walk Challenge, as well as playing host to CSF swimming sessions for children and adults with disabilities.

From their fundraising efforts, the Foundation's Sporting Light Appeal has received around £3,000 to help those who need it most in Norfolk.

Throughout the season the Club is celebrating the good work and personal achievements of local people 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 Sky Bet Championship home match, Norwich City will invite a deserving community-minded individual to 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.
