As our move to the nook gets closer, our new film shows why purpose-built hospice will be so important

Jul 31, 2019

We have released a film highlighting just how important the nook will be for Norfolk’s most vulnerable children and their families.

The nook appeal, though, to raise £10 million for the project, currently stands at £9.2 million, meaning we still need the backing of our generous supporters to complete the fitting out process.

Delivery of care will be phased across from our existing Norfolk hospice, in Quidenham, to the nook, in Framingham Earl, and all being well a full care service will be delivered from the new hospice from the end of September.

The film just released is narrated by Jane Campbell, EACH Service Manager, who is in charge at our hospice in Quidenham and very excited to be moving to the nook.

Jane highlights how EACH has simply run out of space at ​our hospice in Quidenham. Among a host of examples she gives are that staff cannot currently offer care to any child who requires specialist intravenous feeding as a separate fridge is necessary to store their food and there is no room for it. Those children and their families currently receive care and support at home, but will be able to go to the nook.

Jane finishes the five-minute film by informing that what she has said “only scratches the surface”.

  • 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
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum

  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • 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
  • 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
