Can you spare some time to volunteer at our popular Wymondham shop?

More volunteers are needed to help out at a popular charity shop in Wymondham.

The East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices store is based at Anchor House, in Market Place, and open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm and between 10am and 4pm on Sunday.

Shop Manager Becky Cooke is keen to hear from anyone who might be interested in joining her team and supporting the cause.

She said: “We’d love to hear from anyone interested in joining us. As many extra pairs of hands as possible would be wonderful.

“We’re looking for all-rounders who fancy helping with a variety of jobs, like sorting, pricing and operating the till.

“However, if anyone has any specific requests that’s fine, too. We’ll always do our best to cater for everyone.

“For instance, we have separate toy and book rooms and some people just love working in there.

“We’re a friendly bunch and anyone who joins us is assured of a warm welcome.

“Everyone’s equal and we all get stuck in together, as part of a team.”

EACH supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.

It has three hospices, including one at The Nook, in Framingham Earl, just outside Norwich, and The Treehouse, in Ipswich.

“People may think they need to dedicate a big chunk of time but we’re grateful for anything people can give us, even just a couple of hours or popping in at lunchtime,” added Becky.

“They’ll be doing something worthwhile and rewarding and if anyone fancies popping in or calling me, I’ll happily show them around and answer any questions.

“It’ll make a real difference and all the money raised in our shops goes towards our vital care services.”

EACH has developed a thriving retail sector which is an essential funding stream to keep care services running.

To find out more about volunteer opportunities, pop into the shop at 12 Market Place, Wymondham, Norfolk, NR18 0AX, call Becky on 01953 607467 or email volunteerservices@each.org.uk

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.
