Matthew Project hosts fun and remembrance events
This month the Matthew Project, the Norfolk drugs and alcohol charity, is hosting a Family Fun Day in aid of Norfolk Veterans and a Service of Remembrance at Norwich Cathedral.
On Saturday, September 16, 10am – 4pm the Outside the Wire team of The Matthew Project, which seeks to support ex-forces personnel, reservists and their families, are hosting a Family Fun Day at the Territorial Army Centre on Aylsham Road in Norwich.
Donna Darton, who is organising the event for Outside the Wire said: "Everyone is welcome, whether they served in the military or not. It's a brilliant opportunity for people to come together for a day of fun and to find out what different services are out there to support veterans."
The Fun Day will include fun fair rides, stalls, food and drink, a band, a military display, a tombola and raffles.
The event has free entry. There is limited parking at the TA Centre which can be found at 325 Aylsham Road, Norwich, NR3 2SS.
The Matthew Project would also like to invite you to their 10th Service of Remembrance called ‘Light in Darkness’ on Thursday, September 21 at 7.30pm at Norwich Cathedral.
This service offers a chance for family, friends and organisations to honour and remember those who have died as a result of alcohol and drug use.
Anyone is welcome to join, including those who are battling with drug and alcohol use themselves, or who are supporting someone else with addiction. Wherever you are on this journey you would be welcome.
During the service there will be an opportunity for people to choose a pebble and place it in front of the altar in memory of the person they have known and cared for. A Book of Remembrance will also be available in which names of loved ones and messages may be recorded.
For any advice on drug or alcohol addiction, or for further information about the Service of Remembrance, please contact The Matthew Project on 01603 626 123, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
