Norwich ball to help Norfolk Eating Disorders Association

A charity ball is being held in Norwich to raise funds for an under-threat project that helps young people with eating disorders.

The 'Spring Mela' at the Oasis indian restaurant, in Queen's Road, at 7pm on May 5, will support the work of the youth project run by Norfolk Eating Disorders Association (NEDA). The project is funded by Children in Need, but a decision will soon be made on whether this funding is to continue. The ball has been organised by Dr Kiran Chitale, consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist, and Dr Emma Went, specialist registrar at Norfolk and Waveney Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust. 'NEDA has done great work with young people struggling with eating disorders, and the two organisations have recently started to work together more closely,' said Dr Chitale. 'I felt that arranging a charity event could boost morale, aid the cause and raise awareness amongst professionals, wider stakeholders and the public.'
