NCFC Community Hero: Norwich City v Burnley

Our Norwich City Community Hero for the Canaries’ fixture with Burnley on February 4th is Calum Samuels, who supports Norwich City in memory of his mum.

Calum, 15, sadly lost his mum, Andrea, to cancer in 2015 and has since followed the Canaries to “carry on the legacy of Norwich” in his family.

Our hero was nominated by his best friend Eric Johnson, who he has known since his first day of year seven at school.

Eric said: “Calum is an inspiration to me because of all the things that he has done ever since losing his mum.”

Eric’s dad was also pleased for Calum because of how helpful he was around their house and for his great work in school.

Calum also regularly updates Eric on how Norwich played at the weekend and said his favourite Norwich City moment was Teemu Pukki’s stoppage time winner against Millwall in November 2018.

The Norwich superfan said to canaries.co.uk: “I am so thankful to Eric for nominating me for community hero and I can’t wait to place the ball down before the game.”

Since 2019, Fosters has joined our partners Norwich City Football Club in highlighting the great work of local individuals and organisations in our community. Every month during the football season, a ‘Community Hero’ is chosen for a selected matchday – providing an opportunity to showcase that person(s) or initiatives selfless work or important community campaign. Previous Community Heroes have included young carers, veterans, equality campaigners, charity fundraisers and their beneficiaries.
