We are one step closer to a purpose-built children’s hospice in Norfolk after our planning permission in Framingham Earl was granted.
Subject to a successful fundraising campaign, the new hospice will be built on a 5-acre woodland plot in Framingham Earl and will replace our current facility in Quidenham in the south of the county.
We also run the Milton hospice in Cambridgeshire and The Treehouse in Suffolk; both of which are better equipped and designed to care for life-threatened children and young people. A new Norfolk hospice will meet the increasing demands for our services and provide even higher quality care in line with the other two hospices.
The build will only commence following a successful fundraising period. We rely on public support for the majority of the income needed to deliver our care services, and will rely 100% on voluntary income for the new hospice.
With the purchase of land, building costs and professional fees, the appeal will need to raise in the region of £10 million, in addition to the voluntary funds still required to run our services during this time. We will continue to run Quidenham hospice to its current high standards until a new hospice is built.
