Superhero Foundation

The Superhero Foundation

Over the past 10 years the Norfolk Superhero Challenge has, with the help of its splendid competitors, supporters and sponsors, raised over a third of a million pounds for charities in Norfolk.

Just in the last 3 years we have raised;
£67,000 for Nelson’s Journey
£62,000 for the Wells RNLI Shannon Appeal
£85,000 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance

This year we have decided to create the Superhero Foundation. This allows us to support more, smaller charities under one unifying theme. For the 2017 challenge we have decided to target the area of MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING in NORFOLK.

Donations

If you would like to make a donation to the Superhero Foundation please visit our Fundraising Page.

We have chosen three charities to which we will be allocating a proportion of the funds raised towards, they are;

Headway

www.headway-nw.org.uk - works to ensure there is a wide understanding of all aspects of acquired brain injury. The charity promotes independence and rehabilitation by providing information and support services directly to people with acquired brain injury, their families and carers.

The One to One Project

www.onetooneproject.com - provides long term professional support to adults in West Norfolk who are experiencing emotional and/or social distress and mental health difficulties.

The Matthew Project

www.matthewproject.org - supports youths and adults across Norfolk with drug and alcohol related issues. The charity encourages people to make more informed choices concerning their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being and supports parents and families of drug or alcohol users.

The remaining monies will be used to create a community grant programme to which Norfolk based community projects, charities, and organisations in the mental health sector will be invited to apply for grants.

We are delighted to have created the Norfolk Superhero Foundation as it gives us the following advantages;
- The opportunity to help more, smaller, local charities
- Reduces charities administration costs ensuring money goes further toward the actual projects
- One simple online donation platform for supporters to donate through
