North Walsham charity shop launches kids book club

A charity shop in North Walsham is to champion reading for children as it launches a kids book club.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), in The Terrace, off Market Place, will allow youngsters to pick up a new book at half price or for free when they trade in an old one.

Sandy Creasy, EACH Shop Manager, hopes the club will encourage children to enjoy the freedom of reading and share that with friends.

She said: “Not only can they buy a book, but they’re welcome to sit and read in our shop. There will be specials each week just for the children’s department. One of the main reasons behind the club is to help give children the opportunity to feel that this is their shop, as well as their parents’, and to be a very important part of it.”

EACH’s shop in North Walsham opened back in April, when Keith Skipper cut the ribbon. It trades six days a week, from Monday to Saturday.

  • Milton, The Treehouse and The Nook rated ‘outstanding’ by CQC

    At a time of such little good news, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is thrilled to announce that all its hospices have been rated ‘outstanding’ following Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections in January.

    Tracy Rennie, EACH Acting Chief Executive, said: “I’m so proud of all our staff and volunteers. Everyone has a part to play in making sure children and families get the care they need. It’s not only the care staff, but everyone who contributes to make EACH the organisation it is. This huge achievement is testament to their commitment to be the best in all they do and I’d like to take this opportunity to publicly thank them.

    “This has been wonderful news to receive in uncertain times. To protect the vulnerable children who use our service and to reduce the spread of the virus, we’ve suspended some of the care we offer. Short-break care and wellbeing therapies, wellbeing groups and events, face-to-face counselling, care of the child’s body after they have died and our Help at Home volunteering service have all been stopped. Visitors to the hospices are restricted so that only the parents or main carers of children receiving care can enter.”

  • 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.”
