The Norwich Vodafone store team have chosen local charity Break as their Community Connection Award winners, and presented the organisation with £1,000.

Launched in 2014, the Community Connection Awards are a £1,000 donation made to a local charity by a Vodafone retail store.

Jeni Lawes from Break entered the charity for the award, and said: “This donation from Vodafone is invaluable to Break and will support Fusion, a club which helps young people with learning disabilities to become more independent, learn life skills and have fun. Thank you from us all at Break.”

The club helps 11 to 16-year-olds with development support in educational, social, emotional, and communication skills.

Richard Coles, Vodafone store manager in Norwich, said: “It’s great to be able to donate £1,000 to Break – an amazing local charity which supports young people here in the city. I hope this is the start of a great relationship with Break and we can support them further in the future.”
