Can you rise to the occasion and bake some tasty treats for EACH?

It’s very nearly the season to be merry and star bakers have the chance to cause a stir and support East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

The charity, which provides care and support for children and young people with life-threatening conditions, has a stall at the Ely Cathedral Christmas Fair, which takes place from 17th  to 20th November.

In addition to festive cards and gifts, the EACH team will be selling delicious cakes – and are calling on members of the public to help provide sweet treats.

All donations will be welcome and proceeds from the day will be used by EACH to continue its great work across Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Essex and Norfolk.

In addition to its hospice at Milton, the charity also has a shop in Ely High Street, as well as stores in Cambridge, Huntingdon and Soham.

Charlotte Griggs, EACH Community Fundraising Assistant for Cambridgeshire and West Essex, said: “We’re very much looking forward to this event and hoping it proves as successful as 2019, when our stall raised £2,700.

“All donations of cakes will be hugely appreciated.

Notes to Editors

“To need to use a children’s hospice is every parent’s worst nightmare, however, when you get there it’s the most beautiful place imaginable. It’s a lifeline to parents going through the worst possible journey and enables families to find the support that they need.”

  • 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.
