NANSA lights up City Hall
NANSA lights up Norwich to celebrate Learning Disability Awareness Week
16.06.2017
One of Norfolk’s leading disability empowerment charities NANSA is lighting up Norwich City Hall on Monday 19 June to celebrate the start of Learning Disability Awareness Week.
 
Running from 19-25 June, Learning Disability Awareness Week is an opportunity to raise awareness of day-to-day issues faced by people with learning disabilities, as well as sharing the successes of NANSA service users.   
 
“We are delighted that the City Hall is being lit up to help us celebrate such an important week and are grateful to Norwich City Council for their support” NANSA CEO Ros Czarnowska commented.  “NANSA has been committed to empowering people with disabilities for over 60 years.  Our vision is for people to enjoy opportunities, equality and respect regardless of their ability and we’re working hard to ensure that people of all ages with disabilities can access services and support that enable them to achieve their aspirations.”
 
Throughout Learning Disability Awareness Week, NANSA will be publishing stories from their service users through its Twitter and Facebook channels (@NANSANorfolk).  There will also be a NANSA Twibbon which can be added to by social media users to show their support.  To celebrate the week, a charity Zumbathon is being held at Sloughbotton Park, Norwich on Saturday 24 June from 1-4 with tickets available from £10 on the day.  Tickets can be also ordered in advance by contacting Lucia Alba on 07776 201645 and NANSA will receive a share of all monies raised.

Open Day marks new direction at NANSA’s Artshoproject
23.06.2017
An exciting Open Day is being held at NANSA’s Artshoproject on Earlham Road on Friday 23 June, to celebrate a new direction for the project.
 
The Artshoproject is a well-established fixture at the Earlham House shopping centre on Earlham Road. Its recent revamp means it now offers a new range of upcycling furniture, haberdashery, knitting and crocheting, art books, jewellery and art and craft essentials.
 
The Open Day will run from 9am to 4pm on Friday 23 June, with an official opening by Radio Norwich Breakfast show host Rob Chandler at midday, refreshments for customers, and a 10% discount on all stock throughout the day to celebrate the new look store.  
 
"The Open Day on the 23 June will be a great opportunity for customers old and new to look round the revamped shop, meet the team and find some great bargains" said NANSA CEO Ros Czarnowska. "The Artshoproject is a real emporium for creative people and families and we are looking forward to greeting everyone on the day."
 
The Artshoproject is part of NANSA’s portfolio of retail sites with several NANSA charity shops throughout Norwich and an exciting new flagship shop opening in the city centre in the coming months.  As well as providing vital income for the charity, NANSA shops also give people who use their services access to a supported work experience training initiative called “Train & Trade”.
