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.
