The Jane Tomlinson Appeal was established by the late Jane Tomlinson CBE. We support a wide range of charities across the North and the Midlands to improve the lives of children and the lives of people who are affected by cancer. 

Norfolk and Waveney Mind is a specialist mental health charity providing local services to support people, their families, their carers and their employers. We aim to support people to build a meaningful life for themselves and inspire hope for recovery, with or without the continuing presence of mental health problems.

 We acknowledge that homelessness is something that can happen to anyone and we are committed to developing opportunities to work with our service users to improve their life chances. We believe that everyone has the right to live in a suitable affordable home and should have access to services that support and enable them to live independently.

We value the people we recruit to deliver our services and are committed to enabling and empowering our workforce by developing individual, team and organisational skills.

"The Kings Lynn Winter Night Shelter was set up by Churches Together in Kings Lynn in 2017 in response to a huge increase in homelessness in the area. We offer a hot meal and shelter for the night to anyone who needs it: in the winter of 2018-19 we welcomed 97 individuals. We depend on donations for around three-quarters of our funding and we need your help to open again for the homeless of Lynn and West Norfolk next winter!"


The Benjamin Foundation is a charity which helps over 2,500 young people, children and families in Norfolk and Suffolk every year by supporting them through the challenges that life brings. Everything we do brings hope, opportunity, stability and independence to the people we support.
