Norwich City and Fosters Solicitors celebrate our Community Heroes

Norwich City, in partnership with Fosters Solicitors, are proud to welcome Community Heroes from the last 18 months to Carrow Road for today's game.

Every month, the club and Fosters Solicitors highlight a deserving community minded individual as our Community Hero for a selected matchday.

Normally winners of this award are given the opportunity to place the match ball on the plinth prior to kick-off, but due to Covid-19 protocols and fans not being allowed in the stadiums for most of the pandemic, this was not possible.

However, for today’s game we are pleased to be joined by our community heroes from the last 18 months. Let’s have a look back at some of our award winners.

Sam Proctor was nominated in May 2020 for an incredible six week cycling challenge he took part in that saw him cycle 792 miles and raise over £2,5000 for the NHS Covid-19 fund.

Richard Leigh was also a fundraiser as he challenged himself to walk a mile every day in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre in Norfolk, raising more than £5,000 for the charity.

Jessica won her award, aged seven, for completing a 26-mile staggered marathon, raising £1,780 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

Do you know someone who should be nominated for our Community Hero award? Whether the individual works in the emergency services or the armed forces, is a carer or a charity champion, a superfan or a regional sporting hero, the initiative celebrates their contribution to the local community.

There are no restrictions as to who can nominate or be nominated. If there is anyone that you think deserves special recognition, visit www.canaries.co.uk/club/fans/heroes to nominate them.
