Staff from East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) will join Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, who is Patron of EACH, to visit the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke-on-Trent later this month to learn more about a special pottery project which will raise vital awareness and funds for our nook appeal
EACH and Emma Bridgewater, the iconic pottery designer and manufacturer, teamed up last year to create two exclusive mugs to raise funds for the nook appeal
which needs to raise £10 million to build and equip a new children’s hospice for Norfolk.
The partnership was encouraged by The Duchess of Cambridge, and two exclusive ½ Pint Mugs ‘Inects & Flowers’ and ‘Ladybirds’ as well as a ‘Ladybirds Baby Mug’ have been designed. Emma Bridgewater attended the launch of the nook appeal
at the Norfolk Showground on 25 November, 2014, to show supporters the new design.
The visit on February 18 is an opportunity to see the design and manufacture of the mug and meet the staff producing it. They will be hosted by Emma Bridgewater and her husband and Managing Director Matthew Rice. Emma and Matthew used to live in Norfolk and are delighted to be able to support a Norfolk charity.
For every mug sold £5 is going straight to EACH. The mugs will be available to pre-order from emmabridgewater.co.uk
from 18 February 2015 and will be available from Emma Bridgewater shops and website from Monday 2nd March. The prices are as follows: Ladybirds ½ Pint Mug £19.95 with a £5 donation, Ladybirds and Insects & Flowers boxed pair £39.95 with a £10 donation, Ladybirds Baby Mug £15.95 with a £5 donation.
