Norwich Door to Door is our Branch Charity for 2010
At a recent branch committee meeting, the Norwich and Norfolk Branch of CAMRA selected Norwich Door to Door as its nominated charity for 2010.
An interesting debate and lengthy voting process was necessary because there were so many worthy charities applying, and each one had a compelling and convincing case to make, but it was felt that as Norwich Door to Door was serving the local community it got the nod this year.
This admirable organisation’s objective is to enable social inclusion for severely disabled children, disabled adults and older mobility impaired people who are on low income and find they are unable to use mainstream transport or the volunteer car schemes.
It aims to provide social inclusion for people whose disabilities curtail their independence and access by providing transport to enable them to make their own contribution to their area.
The committee are confident that CAMRA members who visit this year's Norwich Beer Festival, as well as other visitors and guests, will again donate as generously as ever to this local and admirable cause.
