Norwich City Community Hero 2022-23

Alongside our partners, Norwich City Football Club, we have been proud to celebrate more wonderful individuals and organisations doing some amazing things in their local communities.

Each month during the football season, a ‘Norwich City Community Hero’ is nominated, with the Canaries and Fosters Solicitors sharing their story and inviting them to attend a match at Carrow Road, to bring out the match ball ahead of the game and be introduced to the crowd.

Again during the 2022-23 season, we have been delighted to introduce some wonderful people, all of whom have inspired or undertaken important charitable work within their communities.

Congratulations to all our 2022-23 Norwich City Community Heroes!

With the new season fast approaching, we would love to receive nominations for new Community Heroes.
