Wymondham fitness club keeps wheels moving for charity

New Revolution (NR) Health & Fitness Club raised £1,650 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) at its second annual eight-hour ‘spinathon’.

Eight members took part in the event, that sees people riding a stationary bike, also enjoying a barbecue, bar, raffle and live music.

Nathan Gostling, NR Director, said: “I’d like to thank all the fantastic members who took part in this eight-hour challenge and everyone who turned up to cheer them on past the finish line. At NR Health & Fitness Club in Wymondham we love supporting EACH in their fundraising and over two years we have raised more than £2,000. We’re looking forward to the next charity boxing event we have planned, when again we hope to raise money for EACH.”

Sophie Mayes, EACH Norfolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “We’re delighted to have benefited from this event once again, having received almost £400 last year. All money raised goes towards care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions, and support for their families.”

NR now hopes to raise even more money for EACH when it hosts an evening of boxing at Holiday Inn Norwich on Saturday, 24 November.

The gym in Wymondham is offering anyone the chance to get involved, with a 12-week training course starting on Monday, 3 September. The cost is £220 and includes three sessions per week, plus kit.

Anyone interested in the offer can sign up by calling 01953 606665, emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visiting www.nrhealthclub.co.uk.

  • How your winter clear-out can make a difference to Norfolk families

    A charity is pledging to continue caring for all the clothes people throw away as part of their winter clear-out, so it can continue caring for the region’s most vulnerable children and their families.

    East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is running its Bag It, Bring It, Boost It donation drive to help ensure high levels of stock heading into a year when the charity hopes for £5 million income from its shops. EACH currently needs around 7,500 bags of donations a week to keep its retail operation running.

    A company from Norwich has already pledged its support of the campaign and filled 25 giant sacks. Staff of SG Wealth Management have contributed clothes, books, DVDs, toys, bric-a-brac and more.

  • EACH to benefit from CT Baker Group’s celebratory fundraising pledge

    A North Norfolk family business that comprises supermarkets, builders’ merchants and an exceptional department store is set to celebrate its 250th anniversary.

    CT Baker Group was established in 1770 and members of the Baker family have been working in and leading the company ever since. To mark its major milestone, the company is planning a bumper year of fundraising and hopes to raise £25,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

    Staff have organised activities to take place throughout the anniversary year and a special commemorative range of gifts will be available for customers to purchase in-store and online. A percentage of all sales will be donated to EACH.

  • Dereham Florist wows at Royal Nook Opening

    Rebecca Larner, 22, of florist The Botany House in Dereham has wowed guests, families and Royalty with her floral displays at the recent opening of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) new hospice, The Nook at Framingham Earl in Norfolk.

    Monitored and helped through the Prince’s Trust, Rebecca is already a force to be reckoned with in the world of floristry. This was recognised through the beautiful posy and flowers created for and given to HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, Royal Patron of EACH at the opening of The Nook on Friday 15 November. The stunning floral arrangements were provided to the charity free of charge and included a combination of flowers which at their centre had the meaning of remembrance and healing for those children and their families enduring the challenges of a life-threatening illness.

    Rebecca’s passion for sustainability ties in nicely with the focus of her long-term hero Shane Connolly who did the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s royal wedding flowers and like Shane she thinks carefully about the flowers and their meaning before incorporating them into an arrangement.

  • Fin-tastic! EACH opens 40th shop in Sheringham

    There were great shell-abrations in Sheringham this morning as East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) declared its 40th shop of-fish-ially open.

    Mermaid Merchelle and Pirate Pete from Elite Productions’ A Mermazing Pirate Adventure, the show on at Sheringham Little Theatre this afternoon, cut the ribbon at the Station Road outlet. Customers then made waves as they flooded through the doors, spending £555 in the first hour.

    Naomi Munro, Shop Manager, said: “It was just mermazing scenes here for the ribbon-cutting and I think we’ve done a great job of really sea-zing the day. We couldn’t have fished for much more, that’s for shore.

    “The initial support from customers has been s’whale and we hope it won’t drift away going forward. The porpoise of this shop is to help bring in money for the care of children and young people with life-threatening conditions across the region, and support of their families.”

  • Party vibes in Poringland as charity shop celebrates first birthday

    There were balloons, banners and bunting aplenty at a charity shop in Poringland as staff and volunteers celebrate its first birthday.

    As well as being able to browse for a bargain, customers of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) are being treated to cakes. A guess the name of a giant teddy bear competition is running and any children dropping by can pick up a free book.

    The shop is on the doorstep of the nook, EACH’s new hospice that has been under construction since November 2017
