East Anglian Team Challenge

East Anglian Team Challenge

Dec 22, 2014
A team of employees from Barclays and other key businesses based in Norfolk have raised enough money to pay for all the care and support provided today by EACH in Norfolk. 

To run EACH services both from the Quidenham based hospice and community support across Norfolk EACH needs to raise £5,300 every day of the year and the team smashed through this target over £33,000 to be split equally between five local charities meaning that EACH received a fantastic total of £6,612.62.

Their fundraising challenge saw the 50 business men and women set off swapping their office suits for hiking gear as they completed the ten peaks challenge. 14 hours, 26km and after climbing up 2500m they could hang up their hiking boots – a tremendous achievement both physically and also for the brilliant amount of money they raised for the 5 local charities.

A huge thank you to all the team members who took part and those who generously sponsored them too!

  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
