Norwich City receive cheque for �210,354 from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society

Norwich City Football Club received a cheque for �210,354 from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society (N&P) on Saturday.

The cheque was presented to City's chief executive, David McNally, on the Carrow Road pitch during half-time of City's 2-0 Premier League win against Bolton Wanderers.

The Canaries receive an annual bonus payment from N&P from money saved by City supporters through an N&P Canary Account.

The latest figure of �210,354 brings the total amount given to the football club from the Canary Account since it was launched in 1997 to �3.6m.

N&P's general manager for sales and marketing, Mike Sketch, said: 'We're very proud of our continuing involvement with the Canaries, and are delighted to see a local club in the Premiership and performing so well.
