A group of youngsters in Taverham have inspired generosity in their community after donating money they had fundraised for themselves to good causes.

Lead youth worker Kerry Johnson said members of Taverham youth club wanted to raise money for the club at the village fayre in June 2018.

After raising £236, Ms Johnson asked the youngsters, aged between nine and 13, what they wanted to spend it on just before Christmas.

She was blown away by their response to donate the money to local good causes.

“I was impressed - for them to give it to someone else, it was a very proud moment,” she said.

A cheque for £100 was handed to Social F.I.E.L.D youth club, which provides support to young people with Asperger’s syndrome, on February 27.

Another £100 will be donated to Taverham day care in Sandy Lane, which was match-funded by local company P Nunn Installations.
