The community arm of Proclaimers
church, known as ‘Love Norwich
’, will be completing five different projects this Friday as they partner with other agencies in the city. The projects include:
– helping this local charity by cleaning the fleet of minibuses they run which are specially adapted to meet the transport needs of severely disabled people
The Bridge Plus+
- doing a complete re-paint of the Norwich International Community Engagement-centre
The Phoenix Centre, Mile Cross
– helping do some remedial work in the grounds following the fire that occurred during the winter. This will include weeding, litter-picking and painting over the damaged murals so the children and young people can add a new design where the fire damaged the old one.
The volunteers are also going to be cleaning a local housing block to give it a bit of a ‘spring clean’ and giving out free bars of chocolate to shoppers in the city centre.
“There is so much buzz among our volunteers as we prepare for these projects,” says Love Norwich project co-ordinator Gemma Neill.
“We’ve got people from as young as 11 right through to people who have retired, all signed up to do something.
“The real heart of Easter is all about love and we want to demonstrate that as we work alongside some great local agencies by serving people in a practical way”.
Proclaimers will be holding their Easter service at 6pm on Easter Sunday at their usual venue, which is at The Space conference centre on Roundtree Way in Norwich.
