Children’s charity gets £10,000 from Roys

Charity Nelson’s Journey has received a £10,000 donation from Roys of Wroxham to help its work with bereaved children.

Nelson’s Journey was chosen as Roys charity of the year to receive all donations raised through sale of 5p carrier bags at Roys’ eight stores and Highway Garden and Leisure.

Sarah Hyde from Nelson’s Journey said: “We are absolutely amazed by the incredible support offered from Roys and their customers. We are pleased to have the backing of such a wonderful organisation, full of staff enthusiastic about our charity.”

The £10,000 can fund 40 children to attend one of the therapeutic residential weekends at Hilltop in Sheringham. The weekend is packed full of team building, coping strategies and memory work with other children and young people of a similar age, giving them the right tools and confidence to move forward positively with their lives.

Ed Roy, managing director at Roys, presented the cheque, saying: “We are very pleased to be helping such a worthwhile cause, Roys would like to thank each and every customer that has donated money by purchasing a carrier bag and we look forward to being able to present Nelson’s Journey with future donations throughout the year.”
