Does your charity deserve a bit of extra festive fun?

The Norwich Ice Rink and their sponsors at Jack and the Beanstalk at the Norwich Theatre Royal, are launching a brand new competition this year.

Registered charities are being invited to enter the competition to win 50 tickets to the ice rink for their organisation.

Charities can choose to either use the tickets, or put the tickets into a raffle or auction to support their charity.

Maryrisa Chappell, Archant consumer events manager, said: 'We know that the ice rink is such a fun and festive event for the public, we wanted to offer people who have been working so hard for a good cause, or have been having a difficult time, the opportunity to have some fun on the ice.'

Daisy Scott, a member of the Norwich Ice Rink Team, said: 'Although the Norwich Ice Rink is a fun-filled, Christmassy event, we felt it was important to acknowledge that Christmas can be a very difficult time of year for some.
