Canaryball Rally

All of our members will be aware that we are very keen to support the CSF’s fantastic Nest project, even if it means jumping into the North Sea on Boxing Day morning!

We also like to support others with the same objective, so that’s why we are encouraging our members to support Team U Pukki in the Canaryball Rally.

The aim is to travel by vehicle across Europe from the 9th to 13th October 2019, visiting the stadiums which Norwich City Football Club played in during their UEFA Cup run in 1993. Only 20 vehicles will be taking part and will be followed closely by local media, but each team needs to raise a minimum sponsorship of £5,000.

We want to help to raise sponsorship for Team U Pukki which is made up of three City fans who will be well know to all on social media and beyond and they are Anita Byrne, David Powell and Lorraine Taylor.

Here’s a bit more about them:

Anita Byrne was hooked on football and Norwich City in the early ‘90’s after she was taken to a game by a couple of male friends. It was a case of “If you can’t beat them, join them”! She got her first season ticket in the 1995/96 season and sat in the Snake Pit. Since 2015, Anita and her son have sat in Block E of the Lower Barclay. Anita never misses a home game and attends as many away games as she can – and has been to over 35 grounds around the country and in Europe. Anita gives her views on the game by occasionally writing a column for MFW.

David Powell has been following Norwich City since 1976. His first game was a home game against Liverpool. He has been a season ticket holder since 1996 and currently sits in the Jarrold Stand. David is also an away season ticket holder and has notched up over 86 grounds both in England and in Europe.

Lorraine Taylor’s Dad took her to see Norwich City for the first time on 31st March 1975 v Fulham. Lorraine was a regular at Carrow Road until the beginning of the 1985/86 season when she moved from Norfolk. Although unable to always make it back to Norwich for each home game, she was able to travel to many ‘away’ grounds. In the early 90’s Lorraine worked in the Club Shop and was there during the UEFA cup run. Lorraine now has a season ticket in the Lower Barclay and travels to as many away matches as she can.

Great fans and a great cause, so if you can find a few quid to sponsor them it would be brilliant. Here’s the link:
