King’s Lynn Action for Children support group meets for the last time

Action for Children's King's Lynn support group sadly switched off the kettle and sliced their last piece of cake, as they bid farewell to their coffee mornings and disbanded after over 25 years of get togethers.

The group, which has met regularly since the mid-1980's, has raised money for local Action for Children projects, such as King's Lynn's, Action Training, and the West Norfolk Young Carers group, by holding various clothes sales, carol singing and various other fundraisers.

But members have decided to call it a day due to increasing age of its members and the lack of influx of younger people to take over the reins.

At the final coffee morning Laura Hanratta, Action for Children fundraiser for Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, said: 'It's a really sad day to see the group disband but everyone at Action for Children is so grateful for the all the amazing work and fundraising they have done to support vulnerable and neglected children in Norfolk.

'Their hard work and dedication has been incredible and their unselfish and passionate work for Action for Children will be remembered for a long time to come.
