Put yourself in the volunteer frame by supporting an EACH shop

Put yourself in the volunteer frame by supporting an EACH shop

Jun 03, 2019

EACH is relaunching its successful Be a Name in our Frame campaign this Volunteers’ Week.

We are calling on anyone who has a little time available to add themselves to our volunteer frames, such as the one pictured, and help it continue providing care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions, and support for their families.

An eye for the unusual, a creative flair when it comes to writing or an interest in photography are particularly desirable, with ​us really in need of helpers to list high value donations on its eBay shop.

We cannot continue what we do without raising over £4 million from retail every year, highlighting the vital importance of our shops and volunteers to run them.

Over 130 people have become a name in our volunteer frame during previous stagings of the campaign. To join them, drop by your closest EACH shop for a chat. There are 15 in Norfolk, 13 in Suffolk, six in Cambridgeshire and four in North Essex. A full list is at www.each.org.uk/shops.

We have a range of other volunteer opportunities available to suit those who think the retail environment might not be for them. Find out more at www.each.org.uk/volunteering, by emailing volunteerservices@each.org.uk or calling 01223 205183.

  • 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 arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. 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
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’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
  • 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
  • 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 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
