AVIVA COMMUNITY FUND: SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY

4 April 2015

Debbie Tooke is Norwich City's latest Community Hero

NORWICH City's meeting with Sheffield Wednesday at Carrow Road on Easter Monday will be given over to supporting the 2015 Aviva Community Fund.
 
The Club's main sponsor Aviva recently launched their national initiative which offers support and funding to causes close to people's hearts.
 
Over the last two weeks City owners Delia Smith and Michael Wynn Jones, Director Stephen Fry, manager Alex Neil and 11 first team players have all supported or put forward nominations for charities or good causes that mean something to them.

The Canaries will wear special shirts when they line up against their Sky Bet Championship rivals, with their kit featuring the Aviva Community Fund logo on the front.



By clicking HERE you too can put forward a project or a local cause, and could win it funding of up to £25,000.

Someone who will also be backing a local charity they support is our latest Community Hero, Debbie Tooke.
 
Debbie will be nominating Nelson's Journey, who she helps provide volunteering bereavement support for children and young people in the Norfolk area to help them with their loss and support them to move forward positively with their lives.   
 
She also has a connection to Carrow Road as she supports and leads the Aviva Match Buddy Programme, where a small team work on matchdays to help supporters who need assistance to their seats so as to enhance their Canaries experience. 
 
Her work for good causes doesn't end there, with the Aviva Governance & Risk Manager set to embark on The Wales 3000 Challenge in June, which involves climbing all 15 of the Welsh peaks over 3000ft in height.

The challenge covers a distance of over 30 miles and is completed in under 24 hours, all in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
 
We wish Debbie all the best with her challenge and hope she and her daughter Emily, who will be joining her to bring the Sheffield Wednesday matchball out onto the pitch, enjoy their day with us.
