Old Buckenham helps St Martins

A thank you to the volunteers

Many of the people from Old Buckenham who had helped throughout 2019 to raise money for St Martins Housing Trust - money that goes to help the homeless in Norwich - met in the Church Rooms last Saturday. A total of just over £39,000 has been raised, mainly from donations and collections outside local supermarkets. Cheques were handed over for two specific events organised by the Old Buckenham 2000 Trust and All Saints Church, Old Buckenham.
Jan Sheldon, Chief Executive Officer at St Martins, thanked all those present for all their hard work throughout the last twelve months and gave a short talk on all that has gone on during the last year to help with the problem of looking after the homeless and ensuring that they have the opportunity to improve their lives. She also answered questions from the volunteers.
