To support local organisations and groups for all ages and abilities through giving grants towards their capital projects from money raised through an annual two-day summer festival
School children, a community choir and its audiences, an archives group dedicated to charting the history of a Norfolk town and a group working towards updating play equipment were among those to benefit from the latest handouts from the Worstead Festival charity.
The charity has a long history of helping groups and organisations both in its villages and in neighbouring parishes. The effort that goes into the festival over the course of the entire year is worthwhile when we get to give these grants to groups who are doing so much good for their communities.
“The very generous donation (£2,500) has enabled us to start putting plans together to bring about the new play park in the new year. The donation means a lot of all members of the committee and we would all like to personally thank everyone involved with organising such a well-loved and well-supported festival.”
Matthew Smith, North Walsham Play
“Thanks to the awesome Worstead Festival committee for donating £500 to our group, The North Walsham and District Community Archive, to help with our work archiving the area’s history. This will help enormously. We plan to buy storage equipment for keeping our massive collection of photos and documents safely stored, both digitally and physically, and also a new portable scanner to aid in digitising photos ‘on location’.”
