VPS Evander pays for a day of care and support from EACH across Norfolk

Oct 13, 2017

VPS Evander has paid for a day of care and support from EACH across Norfolk.

It costs us £5,300 a day to deliver its service in the county and Norwich-based home improvements company VPS Evander, which has a residential arm that trades as VPS247, has in fact managed to exceed that target, raising a phenomenal £6,119.84.

The company has been supporting us since June 2016 and has done all sorts to raise money. The list of its events and activities includes a ‘borrow or buy’ book service, a Santa run, a Christmas fayre, Zumba classes, a dress-down day and member of staff Chloe Foreman’s incredible 260km (162-mile) sled across Lapland.

VPS Evander paid for us to provide its service in Norfolk yesterday (Thursday, 12 October) and, to celebrate, members of staff were given a tour of the charity’s Quidenham hospice.

The business said: “VPS247 is a national company but we’ve been an active member of the local community in Norwich, with our head office there for over 30 years, and we're incredibly impressed by the work EACH does. We're very proud to support it.”

Sophie Mayes says: “A big thank you to everyone at VPS Evander for their efforts and we look forward to hopefully continuing our relationship into the future.”

  • 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
  • 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
