On Thursday 17th May, Norwich Door to Door held a fundraising evening named Call My Quaff. In the style of Call my Bluff, our celebrity panelists described the mystery wine and teams had to determine who was telling the truth! The evening was a great success.

We thank The Narthex for providing a wonderful venue and support and are very grateful for raffle prizes of a wine tasting voucher from www.norfolkwineschool.com and experience day voucher from www.experiencedays.co.uk.
