Charity fundraiser to be held at Norwich railway station in memory of Michelle Dack

Tuesday, 8 May 2018

Live music will fill Norwich station concourse later this month to remember a much-loved woman.

Michelle Dack, a well-known Norwich City FC fan passed away in January this year after a short but courageous battle with sarcoma, a rare form of cancer.

And now her brother, Mickey, and sister-in-law Nicola, who both work for Greater Anglia, are holding an event to raise money for Sarcoma UK, a bone and soft tissue charity.

On May 18 at 11am an event – called the 908 fundraiser, due to her attendance at 908 consecutive football matches – will be held at the station to raise funds and celebrate Michelle’s life.

An auction is also taking place which will see two lucky people from East Anglia win a cab ride in a Class 37 or a Class 321 train.

Other auction items include Norwich City football star James Maddison’s signed boots and a footplate pass on a steam engine which was kindly donated by the North Norfolk Railway.

Nicola Garwood, Michelle’s sister-in-law, said: “We hope to raise as much money as possible for this great charity which helped Michelle and her family. We all miss her every day.

“Everyone is welcome to attend the event at Norwich station, and we even hope that a few of the Norwich City squad will be able to pop down on the day.”

The auction closes on May 14 and anyone who is interested should email their bids to [email protected]
