Fulfilling dreams for Canary fans
As part of Norwich City's ongoing commitment to good causes and charity work, the Community Sports Foundation hosts special 'Wish Days’ for children and adults with serious or life-threatening illnesses.
Whether the wish is to meet a particular Norwich City player, bring out the matchball on a game day or visit the Club's training facility, we will help to make that dream a reality for a loved one.
Working in association with 'wish-granting' charities such as Rays of Sunshine and Make a Wish Foundation, our Wish Days can be tailored to suit the individual's needs or requirements.
Earlier in 2016, a group of children with a range of disabilities were treated to a very special day at the Club’s Colney Training Centre as part of a Wish Day experience.
Expecting only a tour of the facility on arrival, the group were able to watch Alex Neil’s entire training session before spending lunchtime with the whole Norwich City first team squad.
You can watch the video of their surprise here:
In September 2015, 37-year-old Hayley Brickley (pictured below), who has learning difficulties and a rare lymphatic condition in her legs, got to meet her Canary heroes at their team photoshoot as part of a Wish Day experience.
Fifteen-year-old James Frost, who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, came to Carrow Road expecting a ground tour – but with the help of Rays of Sunshine, we were able to give him a tour with a difference.

Wish Days are supported by the Community Sports Foundation.
