Victoria Haverson, marketing manager at The Mall Norwich, said: 'In this current climate of funding cuts many charities are struggling and even more so those local charities that are not perhaps as high profile as some larger organisations. The Mall Norwich has worked closely with the Community Sports Foundation over the past few years and we're delighted to be able to contribute to such a worthwhile local cause that helps people achieve their goals.'
