Norwich charity, backed by TV star Trisha Goddard, appeals for volunteers

A Norwich charity which supports families across the city is calling out for volunteers.

The appeal comes after Home-Start Norwich, based near Grapes Hill, held its annual meeting this week.

About 40 people attended the event which was attended by guest speaker Sarah Spall, strategy and commissioning manager at children's service and the charity's patron and TV personality Trisha Goddard.

This year, 67 volunteers have supported 112 families in Norwich by visiting them at their homes for two hours, once a week.

Anyone interested in finding out more about becoming a Home-Start Norwich volunteer should call 01603 616400.
