Read about our 2019 #givingback event with Age UK Norwich.
On the 16th December 2019 we provided a free 3 course Christmas meal for 24 guests who suffer with loneliness around the festive period.
The event was free to attend and included gift hampers from Tesco, decorations from John Lewis, tickets from the Theatre Royal, a visit from Viva Voce Choir who dazzled us with Christmas carols, and adorable cards handmade and delivered by Falcon Junior School. This was a real community event with everybody involved volunteering their time and services including our staff who kindly offered their time to run this event with us! -- it was truly a testament to the giving nature of Norwich and our neighbourly spirit.
Next year we want to go even bigger and expand this concept to multiple restaurants and charities. As a community, we can make this a Norwich-wide event that truly focuses on the giving aspect of Christmas time. Let’s give back to those in need of extra care around the festive season.
Over 20 suppliers gave their time for free, helped on the day, gifted the food or present to make this event possible. If we all work together and give something small, together those small things add up to make a truly amazing event!

If you are looking to support a local charity we can highly recommend working the Age UK Norwich. When we approached them about our Giving back project we didn't expect them to be very involved, however, they are extremely active in helping to make their events a success and assisted us in gaining sponsors and organizing event logistics and well as Press coverages. Age UK Norwich makes it easy to support them and they do the most phenomenal work with elderly people in Norwich.
