ip.access

Mar 10, 2015

On 10 and 11 March 2015 we’re saying a huge thank you to ip.access who have raised enough money to pay for two days of care from our Milton Hospice through our Pay for a Day scheme.

Ip.access have been raising funds for EACH since 2009 and their total fund has grown to £10,725.79. Their activities have included a charity cricked match, a pie in the face challenge and also taking part in a number of EACH organised events including the annual Santa Run and the Cambridge Abseil. As well as events, employees have enrolled in payroll giving and donated leaving collections.

EACH was chosen after employees at ip.access were asked to select charities they’d like to support and in the 6 years of support HR Director Norman McQueen said “EACH has truly become part of ip.access”.

Without the contributions of organisations like ip.access we would not be able to provide care and support to children, young people and their families living with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia. EACH’s Pay for a Day scheme encourages individuals, organisations and groups to raise enough money for pay for an entire day of care from one of our hospice locations in Milton, Ipswich and Quidenham.- EACH needs to raise £16,000 every day to run our services across all 3 hospices and in the community.

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
