Our work will be in the spotlight at Saturday's fixture against QPR

Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture with Queens Park Rangers has been designated as the Club’s Community Day, where our work as Norwich City FC’s charity partner will be celebrated.

Each day this week in the build-up to the game, canaries.co.uk will be highlighting the Foundation’s sterling work in various areas, including supporting people with disabilities and their families, raising the aspirations of homeless and disadvantaged people, and working to develop skills and employability locally.

The Community Day is an opportunity for fans to learn about the Foundation’s work and to show their support, or get involved in three ways:

Bring a pound to the ground

At the QPR match, we are asking every Canary fan who would like to support us to bring a pound coin to Carrow Road and put it in one of our collection buckets in, or outside the ground.

Of course you are welcome to bring more, and if you would like to donate but can’t make it on Saturday please click here.

Ian Thornton, the Community Sports Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer said:

“Our fans have given incredible backing to the players on the pitch this season, but what also makes our Club special is its commitment to our community.

“We’re asking fans to extend that same unwavering support to the Foundation on Saturday so that we can continue to make a difference to over 38,000 people every year.”

In September, the Foundation opened The Nest, a new multi-purpose community hub in Horsford, are planning a second phase of development to the site to extend our community reach even further. For a recent update on the progress of the #BuildTheNest campaign, click here.

The match day itself will include a host of community activities at Carrow Park and inside the ground, the details of which will be announced later in the week.
