A group of Norfolk cyclists have raised £308.14 for the nook appeal by treating themselves to cake. The 53-11 Cycling Club was founded in April 2014 and its members, of all ages and abilities, are easy to spot as they wear unmistakeable, bright pink jerseys. The club leads social rides on three evenings of the working week plus during the day on Sundays. The rides often include some sort of café or pub stop, further promoting the social aspect.

Donations have, generously, been doubled by Ian Goody, a member of 53-11 and also CEO of Premier Financial Group that sponsors the club.

The nook appeal has now reached £8,278,000 as fundraising to build a new Norfolk children’s hospice continues. A big supporter of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), particularly since it launched the nook appeal in November 2014, has been Ben Du Brow. Ben was one of three vendors of the land EACH bought for its new building - and he generously donated all his share back to the appeal. Ben spent years with Norwich Union until the early ‘90s. More recently, amongst many other projects, he was responsible for a national, award-winning scheme that converted a group of redundant farm buildings built by his ancestors in Framingham Pigot. The development provides 30,000 sq ft of prestigious office accommodation together with a restaurant, function suite and very popular boutique hotel.
