Adventure challenge at Sheringham will help north Norfolk volunteers

The gauntlet has been thrown down for people to tackle an adventure challenge which will raise money to help support volunteers in north Norfolk.

Teams from local businesses, networking and community groups - or just friends - are being invited to climb walls, abseil, ride a zip wire, step off a 50ft fan drop and tackle an assault course later in the year.

The day, at the Hilltop Outdoor Centre at Sheringham on Tuesday October 9 is aimed at team-building, networking and raising funds for the North Norfolk Volunteer Centre.

The challenge is the first of its kind to be run by Voluntary Norfolk, and will raise funds for the Cromer-based centre in Merchants' Court which helps link would-be volunteers with local opportunities.

Since opening in July last year it has helped more than 200 people, who are now tackling a range of tasks including befriending and support for elderly or isolated people, helping local charities, supporting community projects; and getting involved in events that are central to North Norfolk life.

The volunteers develop new skills and make new friends while enriching their neighbourhoods and having fun.

Event co-ordinator Sharon Hulbert said: 'It is important that our local charities are supported and this event will give everyone the chance to take part in something that will not only be good for team building and networking, it will also raise funds for a charity that provides volunteers for many other charities and good causes.'
