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

2019 marks the 25th anniversary since The Benjamin Foundation was established. To mark this milestone the Norfolk and Suffolk based charity has announced plans for a high-profile, visually appealing, engaging and, most importantly, family friendly celebration, and they are appealing for the public to get involved. They plan to create a dramatic art installation called Flight for Youth which will feature up to 25,000 glazed pottery butterflies glazed in one of the charity’s four distinct colours – pink, purple, orange or red. The public are being invited to purchase a butterfly but before taking receipt of their commemorative piece the butterflies are being used to create two dramatic and high-profile art installations, at The Assembly House and Holkham Hall. The charity is also inviting schools, care homes and other groups…

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.

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) listed as 7th in the top 100 not-for-profit companies in the UK to work for, as part of the Sunday Times’ Best Companies To Work For listing. They also went from receiving a one star to a three star rating in the year’s listing – which means they have received ‘extraordinary levels of engagement’ from their staff. The placing and rating of companies is based solely on staff survey feedback results, and as such is down to employee satisfaction within each organisation. EAAA is a helicopter emergency medical service provider covering East Anglia, with offices in Norwich, Ipswich, Cambridge, Melbourn and Peterborough. They provide a 365-day-a-year life-saving service, taking an expert crew consisting of a doctor, a critical care paramedic and two pilots directly to…

Young volunteers at Nelson’s Journey are celebrating the first anniversary of the Smiles & Tears Gift Box. The majority of the charity’s young volunteers have been bereaved. They all felt that many adults and friends around them didn’t know what to say to them when their special person died. They felt passionate about creating a Gift Box with information, therapeutic activities and treats to support and provide comfort to children and young people during this difficult time. Tom was referred to Nelson’s Journey for support following the death of his Mum in a road traffic collision in December 2014. He said “People don’t always know what to say when someone has died, so we designed a box of goodies for children and young people to use when they feel they…

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) has launched an ambitious plan to become a 24/7 helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) provider by 2020. The charity currently operates 365-days-a-year but not 24-hours-a-day, meaning that if an incident happened between midnight and 07:00 there is currently no HEMS provision in the region. The charity is aiming to cover this gap and become a full 24/7 HEMS service by 2020. To do that they need to raise an additional £1 million a year to fund the operation. The type of incidents the charity attend – serious road traffic collisions, cardiac arrests, traumatic injuries and other medical emergencies - do not stop when their crew go offline. While a 24/7 service seemed to make sense, the charity needed to be sure, so have been gathering…
