New EACH shop coming to Sheringham!

Aug 02, 2019

We are excited to announce the opening of our 40th shop!

EACH has attained the former Age UK shop in Sheringham. The premises in Station Road will open at 10am on Thursday, 15 August and trade seven days a week.

 Cutting the ribbon will be Mermaid Merchelle and Pirate Pete from Elite Productions’ A Mermaizing Pirate Adventure, the show on at Sheringham Little Theatre later the same day.

Internationally-renowned Norfolk artist Lucy Loveheart, a keen supporter of EACH, is producing some bespoke pieces of art to capture the delights of Sheringham and they will be transferred into wallpaper as part of the shop’s redevelopment.

Sarah Throssell, EACH Shop Acquisition Manager, said: “Having opened doors in Cromer at the end of May we’re delighted to have a companion shop opening in Sheringham soon.

 “We’ve had a reorganisation of the shop floor and overhauled the sorting room, meaning we’ve been able to increase the levels of clothing, bric-a-brac and other such items on offer, and still have space to lay out a unique children’s zone, with plenty of colouring boards and a reading desk.”

Our retail portfolio is growing at a fast pace, with nine shops having opened last year.  We opened our fourth shop of 2019 in Thetford last week. Our Sheringham outlet will be our 17th in Norfolk.

We welcome donations of the following clean and good-quality goods: clothing, bric-a-brac, modern paperbacks, toys, jewellery, DVDs/CDs, household linens, retro and vintage clothes, and small electrical items. These can be dropped off at the new shop from Monday, 12 August.

 EACH also needs donations of good-quality furniture and can collect it free of charge if you are unable to transport it yourself. Call 01842 821620 for more information.

 To put into context the difference just a small donation to a shop can make to the vital work EACH does here are some examples of what your donation could pay for: 

  •  A top, skirt or pair of trousers worth £5 could pay for art supplies for a session of art therapy
  • A tea set worth £11 could fund an hour of specialist play tailored to a child’s individual needs
  • A nice wedding hat or jacket worth £19 could pay for an hour of vital physiotherapy
  • An item of good-quality furniture or prom dress worth £24 could fund an hour with a psychologist to help guide and support families going through, likely, the toughest period of their lives

 In the past financial year EACH shops generated an impressive profit of over £1.1 million that all went towards helping families make the most of their precious time together.

 Anyone interested in more information on volunteering at the new shop can email volunteerservices@each.org.uk or call Sarah on 07540 335680.

  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’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 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
  • 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 has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • 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
  • 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 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
