Can you find hidden jewels in your nearest EACH shop? Get hunting and join our Queen’s Quest challenge

Eagle-eyed youngsters have the chance to win a prize for finding hidden jewels in their nearest East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) shop.

The charity has 44 stores, providing vital funds to support families and care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.

Now, to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, EACH is planning a fun community event called the Queen’s Quest.

It will run throughout next week, from Monday (30th May) to Sunday (5th June), and there will be three main activities – a treasure hunt, a colouring challenge and a free children’s book with every purchase over £5.

The treasure hunt gives youngsters the chance to help the Queen find her lost crown jewels in time for the Jubilee. Three sets of jewels will be hidden in each store throughout the week and children have the task of finding the complete set.

If successful, they will be rewarded with a chocolate coin.

Harri McBride, EACH retail central support manager, said: “Everyone’s looking forward to next week’s celebrations and this is fun, community activity to engage with children and get them in the mood.

“In addition to finding the jewels, we’re also inviting youngsters of all ages to take part in our colouring challenge and the top designs will be displayed in our shop windows.”

EACH has three hospices – The Nook, near Norwich, The Treehouse, in Ipswich, and at Milton, near Cambridge.

Notes to Editors

“We’d heard about EACH and knew they were a fantastic cause that had supported families we knew, but we never thought we’d be the ones that needed them! Sadly, as fantastic as it is, their service will always be required, and every child who needs their help deserves to have it.”

  • We care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, and support their families.
  • We offer families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support, including where their child dies – at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich).
  • Our family-centred approach includes specialist nursing care, symptom management support, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies and counselling, all meeting the individual needs of the child, young person and whole family.
  • We are recognised as leaders in our field, with a reputation for excellence and commitment to pioneering development and innovation.
  • We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income and this year need to raise £5.5 million from fundraising and £5.4 million in income from our shops. The year before the pandemic we received just 16% of our total income from statutory sources.
  • EACH Royal Patron – Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
