Norfolk Small Charities Showcase 2024

Norfolk's small charities are the lifeline for many in our communities, that's why at the Kearns Foundation are responding to a need to celebrate and support them with the 2nd Norfolk Small Charities Showcase taking place in Norwich on 22nd June

Community Action Norfolk are becoming more concerned with the energy price rise and the impact it is having on not only individuals, but on charities and village halls. That is why we are launching a campaign to raise awareness of the issue and to advocate for change.  

ThinkingFuel update – temporary change to heating oil deliveries
