A special day at the Canaries' training ground

FOUR life-long Norwich City fans and their families enjoyed a day to remember last month when they visited the Canaries' training ground as part of the Community Sports Foundation's Wish Day scheme.

The day is designed to give families the chance to have some time away from their current struggles.

On arrival, the group watched the first team go through their paces on the training pitches before meeting the players who signed autographs, posed for photographs and gave away signed memorabilia.

City skipper Russell Martin, who has experienced a number of Wish Days throughout his time with the Club, said: "It was brilliant for the kids and their families to have some time out and come and enjoy themselves. 

"It’s great for us as players to give something back and make the families feel welcome and a part of the club."

One of the attendees, Bethany, suffers from a neuromuscular condition which confines her to a wheelchair.

Her father, Steve explained the impact the Wish Day had on them as a family: "We all had a truly unforgettable time.

"Bethany was so happy to meet Russ but the rest of her heroes too. She loved every minute!

"Everyone made it such a special time for us all. It was a day that we will treasure every memory of."
