East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has spoken of their delight following the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby daughter.
Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, became Royal Patron of EACH in January 2012 and has provided the charity with many great benefits including raising awareness and understanding of the charity’s services, boosting the media profile and inspiring people to raise funds.
Graham Butland, EACH Chief Executive, said: “We’d like to sincerely congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their second child. We’re delighted by the fantastic news.
“Her Royal Highness has shown great dedication to the role of EACH Royal Patron from the very beginning in January 2012, right throughout both pregnancies, and we’re incredibly grateful for all the support the charity has received.
“Most recently this includes Her Royal Highness’s attendance at two public events including the launch of the nook appeal
in November to raise £10 million to build a new children’s hospice for Norfolk and a visit to the Emma Bridgewater factory in February to see the production of mugs being sold to raise funds for the nook appeal.
“We wish The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their daughter health and happiness.”
Following the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first child George in 2013, EACH saw a number of benefits including increased media coverage which helped raise awareness and interest of the charity and increased fundraising activity including donations to EACH in lieu of gifts for the birth.
