Charitable giving is an important aspect of the NBWN and each year, members select a charity or number of charities to support through membership subscriptions, a monthly raffle and other events.
In 2015, members chose Norfolk Community Foundation as their ‘charity of the year’ and as well as supporting the work of the Foundation, have chosen to establish a small community fund, whereby it invites applications from Norwich (and the greater Norwich area) based community groups for projects up to £2,000.
The NBWN Community Fund aims to support charitable groups in the Norwich area which are working to address disadvantage and social need in their community whether with young people, the elderly or the vulnerable. You can read about the type of projects that might be supported here.
