Hotel and Hospice joins forces for the nook

Hotel and Hospice joins forces for the nook

Mar 17, 2015
Sprowston Manor Marriott Hotel and Country Club being the latest company to support the nook appeal to build a new purpose-built children’s hospice in the heart of Norfolk by signing up to the nook business network.

Following the nook appeal launch event at the Norfolk Showground in November, staff at Sprowston Manor unanimously voted to select the charity and in particular the appeal, by committing to fundraise to achieve a target of at least £10,000.
The team at Sprowston Manor have come up with a number of fantastic fundraising ideas and to kick things off they’ll be organising “The Great Gatsby Charity Ball” which is a casino themed, black tie dinner dance taking place on the 11th April 2015.  Tickets are priced at £45 per individual or tables of ten for £400 and the evening promises a drinks reception, fun casino tables with great prizes, raffles, auctions, a 5 course dinner and dancing to the fantastic Jonathon Wyatt Big Band.  If you would like to attend this great night out and support the nook appeal then please call 01603 254296 and book your place!

Andrew Dickson, General Manager, Marriott Sprowston Manor Hotel & Country Club, Norwich  said: “ We are delighted to be supporting the nook appeal in 2015.  We will be hosting a number of fantastic events and our Hotel team have established a fundraising calendar for initiatives throughout 2015 to support this inspirational project.”

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
