Ways to support The Benjamin Foundation in its 25th anniversary year
The Benjamin Foundation, a charity who supports over 2,500 young people, families and children in Norfolk and Suffolk each year, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2019.
The charity is looking for volunteers to help make the events it has coming up as successful as possible.
Could you or your colleagues give your time, or perhaps use your allocated CSR (corporate social responsibility) policy hours, to help out at one of the following?
Winter Beer Festival Norwich
Norwich hosts the Great British Beer Festival Winter for its third and final year in 2019 and it takes place from Wednesday 19th to Saturday 23rd February at The Halls, St Andrews St, Norwich.
Could you help The Benjamin Foundation by volunteering at this event? If you would like to help their team with bucket collections, they would love to hear from you.
There will be a rota with shifts of 2.5 hours throughout the afternoon and evening and volunteers are able to take advantage of limited free beer after their shift.
King's Lynn GEAR 10K
The Benjamin Foundation are looking for runners who would like to take up the challenge or volunteers to help out at the 2019 GEAR 10K event in King's Lynn.
Each year thousands of runners take part in the Grand East Anglia Run (GEAR) 10K, attracted by a scenic route that features the pretty town centre, River Ouse pathway and The Walks. This year's event takes place on Sunday 5th May 2019.
There are limited free charity spaces if you pledge to raise at least £150 for The Benjamin Foundation. A branded running vest is included. You will be supported with a cheer station and at the marquee in the Charity Village after the race.
The charity is also in urgent need of volunteers between 7:30am and 12 noon to help marshal their section of the race.
If you can help out with either of these events, or if you would like to register to volunteer at other events in 2019, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01603 886932
