Norfolk Day and Sports and Books for Schools, which provided hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of books and sports equipment for local schools, have both been nominated for the 2019 Journalism Matters awards.

The Making a Difference award recognises campaigns by local media to create positive change in their communities and is decided by public vote.

Norfolk Day was announced in the EDP in February 2018 and was backed by celebrities including Prince William, Stephen Fry and TV presenter Jake Humphrey, who voiced a special love letter to Norfolk video.

Norfolk Day was first held on July 27 last year and will return this summer.
