Norwich Primary Academy, Norwich, is donating to the Norwich Foodbank, NR5 Community Hub and East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust Charitable Funds

Published on 04/05/20

A generous £70k donation has been made to the Inspiration Trust family of schools - which we are a part of - to help us to support our communities during the coronavirus crisis. Each of the 14 schools within the trust has received a donation of £5k. 

The school is donating:

  • £2,000 to the Norwich Foodbank
  • £2,000 to the NR5 Community Hub
  • £1,000 to East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust Charitable Funds

Rebecca Handley-Kirk, Principal of Norwich Primary Academy, said: "We've been blown away by the donation - it will make such a big difference to our community during this difficult time. 
 
"We are donating £2,000 to the Norwich Foodbank, £1,000 to East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust Charitable Funds and £2,000 to the NR5 Community Hub for their Meals on Wheels service, who deliver free hot meals to vulnerable people in the North Earlham, Marlpit and Larkman area. We hope this money will help to feed and care for the families in our community."
 
Rainy Waller, from the NR5 Community Hub, said: "This money will really help to keep us going - we asked our community what they needed and they asked for hot meals. We are helping 96 people, that's 20 families, already, and we can now continue and think about supporting more. Donations like this make a big difference to organisations run by the community, for the community."
