The club called in at Sanctuary Supported Living’s Clover Court, which provides 24-hour care and support for people with physical disabilities, as part of a series of visits to spread cheer in the local community while competition is shut down due to coronavirus.

First-team kit manager, John Howes, delivered a cake, a signed shirt and a thank you card from club owner Delia Smith and her husband Michael.

Lesley Pyner, Local Service Manager, said: “It was a lovely surprise and we’d like to say a big thank you to Norwich City FC for taking the time to come and say hello.

“The visit coincided with Mental Health Awareness Week, which is highlighting how little acts of kindness can make a big difference to people’s wellbeing.

“It’s lovely for residents and staff to know people are thinking of them at this time. The shirt is proudly on display in our reception area and we’ll be cheering the team on when matches get back underway.”
