A Wymondham choir group are among those helping East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) in the final stretch of its nook appeal. The appeal, to raise £10 million for the building of a hospice, to transform children’s palliative care for Norfolk, recently hit £9.1 million. Construction of the new building got under way in November 2017 and EACH hopes it can become operational this summer, but needs to raise the remaining funds before then. VivaVoices is among those helping to ensure that happens. A recent choir performance raised £286 and, after, EACH’s Louisa Smart met the choir’s managing director and leader, Graeme Hopson, to receive the proceeds.

Dress Claire, a bold campaign to drive donations at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) shops across the region, has seen the charity benefit from an extra £30,000 worth of items compared to the same period last year. In total across the two-week campaign, EACH received around 13,400 bags, representing a 30% spike from 2018. Dress Claire saw lifesize cardboard cutouts of Claire Wright, 45, from Sutton, near Ely, partially hidden behind a board and greeting customers in all of EACH’s 37 shops. Claire’s family received support from EACH when, in April 2012, her 16-month-old son, Jacob, sadly died from mitochondrial disease. The charity, in Claire’s words, “is a place where we can remember our beautiful boy, Jacob, with a tear and a smile. You never think you’ll be the one…

Holding a Purple Picnic helps raise vital funds so that Nelson’s Journey can keep supporting bereaved children, living in Norfolk, who are struggling to cope following the death of a special person. A Purple Picnic is a wonderful way to make memories with friends, family and colleagues. You don’t have to limit yourself to a traditional picnic, all you need to do is make sure there is an opportunity for everyone to come together, enjoy some food and make positive memories. We are asking the Norfolk Community to hold their own Purple Picnic this July. Your donations will make a difference to bereaved children and young people living in Norfolk

A charity’s project to engage schoolchildren across Norfolk is gaining momentum. The nook schools project, being run by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), encourages schools to raise £400 each towards the cost of a soft play room at the nook, the new hospice being built in Framingham Earl that EACH hopes to open this summer. A team of Year 6 children at Poringland Primary School, just down the road from the nook, organised for members of the school’s junior choir to sing carols and Christmas songs outside a nearby Budgens, collecting £145 in an hour. They also organised a classic penny mile totalling 640m. More activities are on the cards as the school has decided to up its fundraising goal to £1,000.
