The food, drink and music festival raised money for the Norfolk-based charity Nelson’s Journey

Porkstock, the food, drink and music festival that celebrates the best of Norfolk produce, has raised over £10,000 for children’s bereavement charity Nelson’s Journey.

Around 5,000 people attended the fun in October at the Royal Norfolk Showground and more than 1,200 tickets were sold for the Porkstock Evening Knees Up, with live music, the Porkstock gin palace and street food.

Ben Handford, co-founder of Porkstock said: “Moving to a bigger venue has meant our operating costs have increased this year, but despite that we’ve exceeded the amount we’ve been able to donate to Nelson’s Journey. This is largely due to the financial support of our sponsors who enable us to deliver a professional and fun event whilst raising money for a fabulous cause.”

Simon Wright, chief executive of Nelson’s Journey, said: “In the last year, we’ve seen a huge growth in demand for our services. The £10,000 raised last year contributed to the salary of a support worker over a six-month period, allowing us to support an even greater number of bereaved children in Norfolk. Porkstock’s continued support means that we can continue to work to bring back smiles to children who’ve lost a special person in their lives.”
