Town honours fund raising team with civic award
A civic award was presented to Wymondham couple Jennifer and Jim Cawte at a ceremony held at the Wymondham Dell Bowls Club by the town’s mayor Joe Mooney.
Mr Mooney said “Jennifer and Jim are a great local fund raising team. They have over many years managed to raise thousands of pounds for local good causes and I know that many groups and projects in Wymondham have benefited from their fund raising activities. They are a credit to Wymondham and they are in my view very worthy recipients of this year’s Wymondham Town Council Civic award”.
In May 2016 they set off in their 1983 Morris Ital from Wymondham to John O’Groats, Lands’ End and back to Wymondham. They managed to raise a staggering £4,350 for the new children’s EACH hospice near Norwich. The above is just one small example of how they go about raising funds.
Jennifer and Jim said “We are thrilled and honoured to have received this civic award. Fund raising is something that we both enjoy doing and community service has been a large part of our life since Jim joined the Wymondham Lions Club in 1978”.
