Norwich social club’s fun day raises �2,000 for charity

A family fun day at Bayer Social Club in Hellesdon raised �2,000 for charity.

The Norwich social club, near Marlpit Bridge on Hellesdon Road, held the annual event for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) for the fourth year - taking the total raised by the social club for EACH to over �34,000.

Saturday's fun day had all sorts of entertainment to keep the hundreds of people who attended happy.

Entertainment on the day included an acrobatic performance from Chermond Gymnastics Club, a sniffer dog display, the Allstars Dance Academy strutting their stuff, a puppet show, bouncy castle, tombola and all the usual fun of a summer fete.

Eddie Edwards, part of the organising committee for the event, said: 'It was a brilliant day, absolutely brilliant. It is the fourth time we have run the event and it was probably the busiest one we have had.'

Mr Edwards continued: 'We raised �2,000 and that is more than ever, so we can now present EACH with a cheque for �5,000 from the different things we have done this year.
