A fundraising group in Norfolk has been given national recognition after collecting a judge's special award at a prestigious ceremony in London.

The Norfolk Future Fund, which was set up by the Norfolk Community Foundation in 2014, aims to bring a younger generation of donors closer to their communities to encourage charitable giving and to support local charities.

Its work had been nominated for the Trailblazer Award at the Beacon Awards which includes the likes of Dame Vivienne Westwoodand former England rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio OBE amongst those short-listed.

The Norfolk Future Fund collected a judge's special award at the event at the Mansion House, London. The awards recognised philanthropists and the work they are doing to inspire others to get involved in charitable giving and to support disadvantaged communities in the UK and overseas.
