SIGHT LOSS CHARITY GIVEN £653 FROM NORTH NORFOLK ROUND TABLERS
Norfolk’s sight loss charity has been given a £653 boost following the generosity of members of a north Norfolk branch of Round Table.
Stalham & District Round Tablers decided to raise money for the Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind at their 45th Charter Night, an annual event which sees members get together for a dinner to celebrate all that is good about the organisation.
Guest speaker at the dinner was former Norwich City footballer Jeremy Goss, now head of fundraising at the charity, who entertained the members with stories of his time at the club, including his legendary goal against Bayern Munich 25 years ago.
Mr Goss is planning a major cycling challenge in 2019 to raise money for the NNAB, and the money raised at the dinner will kickstart that fundraising effort.
“The NNAB is such a great organisation which helps so many people in our county,” said Stalham & District Round Table president John Maitland. “Round Table has a long tradition of supporting local charities, and we are delighted that members were so generous on the night.”
Stalham & District Round Table is one of around 600 UK branches of the organisation, which was founded in 1927 in Norwich by Louis Marchesi.
