Norwich Business Group dons its dancing shoes for Nelson’s Journey and Action for Blind People

Norwich Business Group (NBG), which this year celebrates its 21st year of running monthly business networking events in the city, is putting on a Charity Dinner Dance in aid of two worthy causes – Nelson’s Journey and Action for Blind People.

The black tie event will be held on Friday 19 October from 7.30pm at The Mercure Hotel, Boundary Road and will feature live music, sponsored by Steeles Law, and an auction, overseen by NBG committee member Nigel Morgan of Spalding & Co.

Speaking of the fundraising event, Carol Plunkett, Funding & Marketing Officer at Nelson’s Journey commented: “Due to an increase in referrals over the previous years, we have increased our residential therapeutic weekends for bereaved children from four to six and will be working with around 300 children this year.  We rely entirely on donations to sustain this service to children and young people in Norfolk and are very grateful to organisations such as Norwich Business Group, who choose to support us in this way.”

Derek Rix, Head of Operations at Action for Blind People added: “We will use the money raised to fund our ongoing work for people with sight loss, helping them in many aspects of their lives, supporting them in finding the right services and products to live independently.”

Tickets sales for the event are going well and NBG are looking for individuals and businesses to take the final few tables.  Priced at £25 each, tickets can be purchased from Nelson’s Journey (01603 431788), Action for Blind People (01603 455767) or Steeles Law (01603 598000).
