Mattressman, Britain’s biggest mattress specialist, have signed up for the nook business network
scheme to raise funds to enable East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) to build the nook
, a new purpose-built children’s hospice in the heart of Norfolk.
Staff at Mattressman collectively voted to support the charity, and the nook appeal
in particular, following the launch event in the presence of EACH Royal Patron HRH The Duchess of Cambridge in November. Mattressman Managing Director Andrew Kerry has pledged the company’s support in raising £25,000. Mattressman
has 14 stores across East Anglia and London, many of which are in the areas where families receiving care and support from EACH live, making the relationship a perfect fit. The company also has a hugely successful online operation, which will be utilised in various ways to raise funds, as well as communicate to customers news on the appeal and the appeal target.
Staff at each of the stores and Head Office, based in Norwich, are well on their way in planning ways to fundraise, and loyal customers will also be invited to contribute should they wish to do so.
There’s also talk of an exciting link up with Mattressman and EACH with a unique children’s mattress, made in their Norwich factory, being made available for purchase. This initiative will in turn support the aim of building the new hospice.
Andrew Kerry, Mattressman Managing Director, said: “The nook appeal
is a fantastic cause that will make a real difference to people in the local community, and I’m very proud to be giving our support to the appeal this year. The team at Mattressman and I are putting our heads together and coming up with lots of exciting ideas for fundraising, and we’re looking forward to working with EACH over the coming months to help them make the nook a reality.”
