Aviva Community Fund // What the awards are used for in Norfolk

February 15, 2018 No Comments

Throughout your daily life, you will come across local groups, communities and causes.  Some of which you will access and use the services they provide regularly, others you will have heard of because of their involvement in your area, whilst there will be those that you might not be aware of until you are in need of the support, advice, or the facilities that they offer. 

The majority of these services will be run using funds that these groups have raised themselves or via grants. With budgets becoming more restricted, these causes are in need of a helping hand to ensure that they are able to continue their fantastic work.  The Aviva Community Fund is one those helping hands that each year offers local causes and community groups the opportunity to bid for funding.

RNLI Fish Supper: Child-friendly fish suppers

September 30, 2017 No Comments

As a child I loved having a fish supper, I even went through a phase of only wanting fish fingers for me tea.  Somewhere in my teenage years I gained a food aversion to fish and would be sick if I ate it.  However, during my pregnancy with Piglet, it was one of the foods that I craved.  Thankfully it is something that I have been able to continue to enjoy since her birth.  So a fish supper is now regularly on our family meal plan.

The Benefits Of Volunteering As A Family

Families don’t always spend a lot of time together. One child’s being driven to a soccer game while the other child is being dropped off at a friend’s birthday party. The obligations don’t seem to end. It’s frustrating for parents who want to build a strong family life and spend time with their kids.

There’s time there if you look for it. Once you have it, there’s not always a clear answer for what to do with it. Giving back and supporting the community is one way to make a difference and share in an activity together. See the benefits of volunteering as a family.
