Norfolk cause supporting carers asks for your help in £25,000 grant fight
An appeal which gives unpaid carers a better quality of life could receive £25,000 - but it needs your help.
People have been urged to help the Norfolk Millennium Trust for Carers (NMTC) - which runs the EDP We Care Appeal - receive a community award of up to £25,000 from the Freemasons as part of its 300th anniversary celebrations.
The NMTC, which is administered by Norfolk Community Foundation (NCF), helps carers pay for practical items like washing machines and laptops.
NMTC has been nominated by the Freemasons, so will receive a grant, but a public vote determines its value - from £4,000 to £25,000.
Graham Tuttle, NCF chief executive, said: 'A grant of £25,000 would make a huge difference to our work and the support we can offer through the NMTC which currently helps around 200 carers each year.'
