Handelsbanken Norwich Charity Ball

Raising funds for mental health and wellbeing support

The Handelsbanken Norwich 20th Anniversary Charity Ball is taking place on the evening of Friday 4th October at Holiday Inn (Norwich North), working together with Norfolk Community Foundation to raise money for the Handelsbanken Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund.

Following the huge success of the 2022 Handelsbanken Ball, the Norwich team of Handelsbanken, with Norfolk Community Foundation, were able to make significant grants to local organisations working in the field of mental wellbeing. Inspired by their visits to many of the funded projects, the team at Handelsbanken believe passionately that mental health and wellbeing is a priority area for support at this current time.

This special event will enable grants to be distributed to projects who are supporting the mental health needs of some of the most vulnerable in our local community. Your donation will contribute to this mission and ensure this vital funding programme continues to an impact where it is needed most.

“Much progress has been made in reducing the stigma surrounding mental ill-health, but we still have a long way to go. Asking for help is only the start point in the process. We need significantly more effective services here in Norfolk to help those affected, and to keep them safe.”

The Lady Dannatt MBE, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk and Norfolk Community Foundation Patron
