Norwich Medics RFC Chairman's Dinner
On Saturday the 5th of May the Norwich Medics Rugby Football Club held their annual Chairman's Dinner where the club celebrate their achievements throughout the year and raise some money for a nominated charity. This year the club's chairman was Jay Thomson brother of Chloe, one of our trustees. We are thrilled to say that Jay chose to support Milele so Chloe, James, Amy and Rich went along to the ball to represent Milele and join in the fun.

The evening was fantastic with great food, drink and entertainment. The club had lots of brilliant achievements to celebrate; all of their teams had successes throughout the season and the club were able to hold their first ever old girls vs students match earlier that day, a real landmark in the club's history.

My personal highlight was a particularly special auction item which was simply described as 'A very nice fleece from my Dad's work' which (as you can imagine) really captured the imagination of the bidders and brought in a tidy sum!
All of the hard work really paid off and the club managed to raise an amazing...
Milele is a very small charity and we rely on sponsorship and donations to continue doing what we do. This money will make such a massive difference and help us to continue to help the children on our programme achieve their dreams.
To give you an idea of what can be achieved with this amount of money I've given a few examples...
Months of Primary Education
A child could attend an outstanding primary school for more than 8 years.
226 life saving mosquito nets could be provided to families at risk of malaria.
Days of University Education
Supporting a young person to receive a whole year of university level education.
This donation is absolutely amazing for Milele and really kick starts our 10th anniversary fundraising activities.
