We launched our #givingback initiative in 2019 to thank Norfolk for supporting us. Our aim is to spread love and support throughout our amazing county. When we launched this project our aim was to bring local lonely people together during the festive season with a free meal and gifts.
Every year since we have committed to hosting a special event to support lonely elderly people in Norwich that are supported to Age UK.
We want to show people we are thinking of them and they are not alone!
We hope this initiative will grow and that other restaurants and local business owners will join us to make Norfolk even more special! We are here to support you with a focus on community projects to help prevent loneliness.
Jorge, Owner & Manager, Jorge's Restaurant
What are we doing this year?
Event Date: Monday 13th December 2021
Time: 1pm - 4:30pm
For many people, the last year has been a terrifying and isolating few years. Many people across Norwich have found themselves struggling to stay well and warm, now imagine how scary that must be without any family to support you? Sadly there are many elderly people across Norfolk that have little to no social interaction. Whilst we realise our annual event won't change the world, it is an opportunity for elderly people in Norwich to get together, hopefully, make some new friends and get totally spoilt!
Check out the schedule!
1:00 - 1:30pm: Guest Arrival - Selection of Codfish cakes, cold meats & bread served on the table
1:45pm - 3:00pm: Mains served: Roast Turkey & Beef, Roast Potatoes & Veggies
