Make your New Years's resolution for the nook!

Make your New Years's resolution for the nook!

Jan 05, 2015
If you haven’t already there’s still time to make your New Years’ resolution for 2015 and this year we’re asking that you choose to support the nook appeal. 

This is a resolution that will benefit you as an individual but also the many life-threatened children, young people and their families who will benefit from your fundraising efforts.

The nook appeal was launched in November 2014 in the presence of our Royal Patron, The Duchess of Cambridge, outlining the vision for a new purpose-built children’s hospice which will cost £10million to build and equip.

Getting healthy is always top of the resolutions list – you could get sponsored to go on a diet, give up smoking or drinking alcohol and donate the money you save to the appeal too. 

As well as abstaining you could get active in one of our fun runs or big challenge events. Take a look at our Norfolk events and challenge events pages to find out what we have on offer – there’s everything from a 2mile fun run, a half marathon or a serious bike ride from London to Paris.

And there’s other ways to get involved that don’t involve donning your running shoes or cycling helmet:
  • Have a collection pot at home and fill it up with your loose change to donate to the nook appeal
  • Hold a coffee morning
  • Have a clear out at home and hold a car boot sale
  • Organise a dress down day where you work (don’t forget your company might match-fund your efforts too!)

Not all resolutions need to have a fundraising element though, take a look at our volunteer pages if you can donate your time or simply engaging with us online through our Twitter and Facebook pages helps us spread the word of our cause.

And if these options are all too much – make a simple resolution to make a donation to the nook foundation appeal and donate £10 in different ways including:

  • Text to donate - Text NOOK10 + £10 to 70070
  • Just giving page - justgiving.com/thenookappeal
  • Send a cheque to - East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), Suite 5, The Old Dairy, Elm Farm Business Park, Norwich Common, Wymondham, Norfolk, NR18 0SW. 

And if you are supporting the nook appeal tell us what you’re up to! We always love to hear your plans – use @EACH_Norfolk or go towww.facebook.com/thenookappeal so we can share your fundraising or awareness raising efforts.

  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’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
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • 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
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
