Norfolk based materials supply firm Plastic Building Supplies Ltd (PBS) who have offices in Norwich, Kings Lynn, Gorleston and Thetford have been supporting EACH for 20 years, and over this time have raised a staggering £80,000. They have pledged to continue this fantastic work as they become the latest local company to sign up to the nook business network pledging to raise at least £15,000 over the term of the appeal.
The nook appeal aims to raise £10 million to transform children’s palliative care across the county, which includes a new purpose-built hospice the nook on a 5-acre woodland site in Framingham Earl just south of Norwich.
The nook business network asks for companies small, medium and large throughout Norfolk to commit to raising either £10,000, £15,000 or £25,000 over the duration of the appeal in return for a number of benefits and support that we will provide. More than 30 local companies have now pledged their support for the scheme.
Stephen Gibling, Director at PBS, said: “We are very proud to have supported East Anglia's Children's Hospice (EACH) for 20 years and continue to support their outstanding work with families and children. EACH provides a wide range of services and support to children and families with life-threatening conditions.
“To help these families even more they are trying to raise money for their nook appeal to build a new state of the art facility in Norfolk. They can't do this without our help, that's why at PBS we have committed ourselves to raise £15,000 in the next three years for the appeal. I’d encourage other businesses across Norfolk to join us and support this worthy local cause!”
EACH, which provides care and support to life-threatened children, has outgrown its current hospice in Quidenham. Due to the changing and more complex needs of the children and young people they care for and the increased demand for their services and needs to move to a purpose-built site. The nook will be built in Framingham Earl just south of Norwich and will offer services which are either currently unavailable or extremely limited at Quidenham.
James Bacon, EACH Norfolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “We’re delighted that Plastic Building Supplies Ltd have pledged their support for our nook business network and are committed to helping make our vision of a new hospice for local life-threatened children and their families a reality.
“We need the support of all sectors of the Norfolk community – individuals, schools, community groups and of course the business sector to achieve our fundraising target , so support from PBS is fantastic and we very much look forward to working with them.”
