Funeral home helps Waveney Foodbank with wheelbarrow push in Diss

Bereaved children and families in crisis are set to benefit from a barrow load of food which was wheeled through the streets of Diss last week.

Rosedale Funeral Home helped raise the profile of the district's newly launched foodbank – and local charity Nelson's Journey – by sponsoring the mile-long wheelbarrow push.

Pushing the barrow was Nelson's Journey's Ryan Doubleday who has been raising funds by doing 100 different and unusual activities, each for a mile.

Rosedale's Simon Beckett-Allen said: 'Both charities are very close to our hearts and, with Christmas just around the corner, we thought this was an opportunity to lend our support.'

The Diss-based Waveney Foodbank is collecting donations for distribution to local people in crisis, while Nelson's Journey supports bereaved children.

Rosedale's six funeral homes will also soon open their doors as collection points for the Salvations Army's Toys 'n Tins Appeal, which helps over 4,000 people across Norfolk each year by providing food and gift hampers.
