We are proud to introduce you to the Whatever It Takes collection, featuring ‘symbols of hope for the 21st Century’ drawn by leaders in the worlds of fashion, film, television, music and sport. The signed artwork donated by each Leader is his or her original work, and has been donated for the exclusive use of the Whatever It Takes campaign which has so far raised over $11.8 million for 21st Century Leaders through licensing royalties. Whatever It Takes supports key global development causes including poverty alleviation, environmental conservation and the protection of children.
North Walsham Live Aid was formed in 1985 following the massive success of the Wembley event. It was organised by Barry Holden, Gerald Turner, Rod Palmer and Darren Turner and was supported by The 3rd World Centre in Norwich.
The aim was to purchase two Bedford trucks, fill them with aid and send them to Eritrea where the famine was worst. To raise the £8,000 needed a rock concert was organised at the community centre in North Walsham with 10 bands playing for free and a memorabilia auction with items donated by many stars.
In just under three years we have already achieved so much in terms of new play provision within North Walsham. Two new parks are in full operation across the town and we have much more planned for the future!
Membership comes from all walks of life and we still strive to uphold the great efforts put in by those who have gone before us. Our lodge is one of the oldest in the area and was constituted on February 18th 1758.

As a life long resident of North Walsham I have deep affaction for the old Norfolk market town especially in recent times where many small towns are facing all the challenges of internet shopping, supermarkets, etc. To be involved with North Walsham groups and organisations is always a pleasure for me and great to see a project like this.
