Details are coming together on a fundraiser for the Norwich family that lost its home to fire Sunday, March 16.

Norwich Optimist Club has booked the Norwich Community Centre for Saturday, April 26 for an event club President Mike Legge said will include a silent auction and refreshments of some sort. He added people should save the date to attend.

Legge said the club is looking for donations of items for the silent auction and anyone who would like to donate can contact him at 519-281-3240.

Club members will be meeting in the next few days to finalize the details and that information will be made available as soon as possible.

The blaze on Stover Street North left a family of four without a roof over their heads and most of their belongings were destroyed. Residents and businesses have pitched in to help with collecting items for the family as well as cash donations and fundraisers.
