Charity of the Year

Each year the tournament chooses a local charity to support, in the past we have supported Norfolk Night Shelter, Norfolk Hospice, Parkinsons Trust and the RNLI, 2023 was the turn of the Hunstanton and District Food Bank

The Foodbank is based in St. Edmund’s Church Hall on the town’s Church Street where it has been since opening in November 2014.

Sadly, the number of people that need the Foodbank’s help and the amount of food given out has been increasing steadily year-on year-since launch.

Financial deprivation is something that is often unseen; last year the Foodbank distributed more than nine tonnes of food to people in Hunstanton and the surrounding villages.

Like many other foodbanks, it also helps those who are in need with gas and electric top-ups, and give out vouchers redeemable in local shops for fresh meat and fruit and vegetables.

However, it is only through the generosity of those who donate food and money that the Foodbank is able to continue offering its services.
