This time last year we were very busy preparing to assist The People’s Picnic in Norwich. Thank you to all the local businesses, BNI Enterprise, old friends and new friends who helped us with donations.
We were completely overwhelmed with the generosity and were able to take 10 volunteers in 5 (completely filled to the rafters) vehicles including 130 bags of food, warm clothing, toiletries, and sleeping bags.
We will be donating to charity this year and planning a charity event during 2019.

FABB is also a local and worthy charity who support people in crisis in Norfolk. https://www.facebook.com/groups/266679814057019/
The Tharston-based company had aimed to fill a van with items, but ended up with enough to fill four – and plenty of offers of help too.
By teaming up with the People’s Picnic, the 10 volunteers distributed 130 bags of food, sleeping bags, bedding, clothing and toiletries at the Haymarket in Norwich in the week before Christmas, and also gave to the Salvation Army.
