Club hugely grateful to fans who contributedNORWICH CITY are delighted to confirm the Club’s recent day of action has raised a record-breaking total of £64,153 for Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis Appeal.
Norwich and Leicester City fans donated to a bucket collection held at Carrow Road when the two sides met in the Premier League last weekend, raising a fantastic total of £17,649 (including Gift Aid).
The Club’s main sponsors Aviva weighed in with a generous donation of £10,000 and another £2,000 was added to the kitty by our official kit manufacturers Errea.
The total was swelled by contributions by the Club from ticket sales and sales of selected Canaries Official merchandise items, as well as text donations from fans.
There is still time for fans to add to the figure, by bidding on selected items of kit worn by the Norwich players during the match, at http://norw.ch/StCauc.
The Club is hugely grateful to all of the fans who have contributed to the largest-ever total raised for charity via a day of action by Norwich City. A huge thank-you also to our partners Aviva and Errea and to the small army of volunteers from the Club’s Community Sports Foundation and our supporter groups who helped to make it happen.
Tanya Steele, Executive Director of Fund-raising, Marketing and Communications at Save the Children, commented: “We have been overwhelmed by the incredible level of support we’ve received for our Child Refugee Crisis appeal.
“These are tragic and desperate times for child refugees and their families who are fleeing bombs, bullets and torture in warzones like Syria. But it’s incredibly humbling to see people come together at a time like this and thanks to the hugely generous support of partners like Norwich City FC who have raised over £64,000 towards our appeal we can do even more to help children caught up in this crisis.”
