The nook appeal has received a £7,000 boost thanks to former BBC Beijing bureau chief and novelist Humphrey Hawksley.
Humphrey gave a captivating presentation about his new book, Asian Waters, widely praised as the first to break down the politics and tensions of the Indo-Pacific, at a sold-out Wells Maltings in Wells-next-the-Sea.
Proceedings were rounded off with words from former MI6 chief Sir John Scarlett KCMG OBE.
Humphrey said: “I feel so privileged to have been a part of raising such an amazing amount for the nook appeal. The generosity in helping vulnerable, sick children is fantastic and a mark of our values. I so much look forward to visiting the new site when it’s finished.”
Dianne Rowe, Major Donor Manager for the nook appeal, said: “This was a unique opportunity organised by a valued EACH supporter who’s also a Wells Maltings patron. The audience left feeling very informed and, perhaps, somewhat alarmed about the political future of the world! We hope the evening went some way towards raising awareness of the nook appeal in the very north of Norfolk as our new hospice will serve families right across the county.”
