We've had a very successful couple of months and we hope to continue this during the rest of this year!

In April, we hosted the first 2016 Bishop's Open Garden event and, despite hail, rain and wind (!), we raised just over £1,600 from ticket sales, our cafe and various stalls around the garden. We're really pleased that despite the inclement weather, people still came out to support us and to see the beautiful gardens - thank you all who came and who supported us as helpers.

During May half term, we were awarded a cash collection at Norwich Theatre Royal and, for the closing week of The Bodyguard, we were able to collect as people left at the end of each evening performance and the two matinees. It was amazing to see how quickly the theatre emptied - within 15 minutes, it was clear! However, we were even more amazed by people's generosity and how much the donations added up to - over £1,200! Not bad for just a few evenings standing around! Our thanks again go to our volunteers who came to help and of course to all those who gave.

Norwich foodbank is a not-for-profit charity and, with no statutory support or income, we rely heavily on grants and donations. If you would like to fundraise for us - whether through a cake sale at work or school, a sponsored sports event - the Norwich 10k perhaps? - we would love to hear from you and support and promote where we can. Please do get in touch with us - our phone number is 01603 251733 or email

Thank you!
