Deliveries of food parcels by Norwich City and Community Sports Foundation staff have continued this week, with a further 500 distributed across the Norfolk community to season ticket holders, local charities, and local food hubs, including those in Breckland, North Norfolk, and Great Yarmouth.
Dawns New Horizon and the Norwich City Food Hub at the Old Britvic Site have also received food parcels within the last week.
There has also been a number of deliveries of cakes, signed shirts, and iPRO drinks delivered by kitmen Pete Dye and John Howes around the county. iPRO have delivered 220 bottles to care homes across Norfolk so far.
As previously announced, Daniel Farke, the players, and senior staff at the Football Club have donated some of their salaries, while owners and directors have also contributed to the amount raised, which totals over £200k.
The sum is currently being used by the Foundation and volunteers from the Football Club’s staff to support some of the most vulnerable people and causes in Norfolk who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19.
A second phase of the project will come later whereby the Foundation’s work will support people with the potential longer term impacts of the COVID-19 crisis such as poor mental health, the side effects of inactivity, and loss of employment or housing. The Foundation is now accepting donations towards the project on a dedicated Canaries COVID-19 webpage.
Staff volunteers from across Norwich City’s finance, catering, academy and kit departments and more continue to help and aid the club’s wider community support.
