Operations Director for Norse Catering, Andrew Lipscomb, said: “We are delighted to be taking part in this year’s event. As a local charity, Nelson’s Journey supports Norfolk children and families, and we feel it is our responsibility as East Anglia’s leading education caterer to promote and contribute to their important work.
“What could be a more relevant way for us to do this than supporting the event with a picnic-themed school lunch”
Nelson’s Journey’s Funding & Marketing Manager, Gary Stevens, added: “It’s fantastic to have the support of Norse Catering for our 2021 Purple Picnic. Norse has a brilliant reputation as a provider of school meals and, having caught a glimpse of their Purple Picnic menu, I’m sure pupils are in for an absolute treat!
“We hope that more people and organisations will join us throughout July, as we come together to hold purple picnics across Norfolk as part of our fundraising efforts.
“Thank you to everyone that has already signed up, helping us to support bereaved children in Norfolk. The last 15 months have been especially difficult for our fundraising, with demand for our services at a high level.
“With fundraising being incredibly important to us, we are asking people in the community to get behind our Purple Picnic week and help us to bring back smiles to these children and young people in our county.”
