Funeral director Breckland Funeral Service has launched a search for a local charity, community group or project to receive a cash award.
It is part of the Community Cash Award scheme being run by Anglia Funeral Services, which the company is part of. Each of the business' 17 funeral homes in the region will nominate a local good cause to receive £250.
“It is a chance for us to reward the people who do so much good in our local community,” explained funeral manager Eirlys Johnson. “There are many worthy causes, often with work being done by volunteers whose efforts are unrecognised as well as unpaid. This is our way of rewarding them.”
Groups and charities may nominate themselves for the award. Winners will be honoured at an awards ceremony later this year at EPIC, the former Anglia TV studios in Norwich.
