Join our campaign and make a difference by volunteering in your local community

A campaign has been launched to recruit fundraising volunteers to help at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) events.

The charity is on the lookout for additional people to lend a hand and support its various fundraising activities.

This could be at its own events or those organised by a third party, corporate and community speaking or bucket and pot collections.

The campaign, which will hopefully boost numbers, is called #WeNeedYou – Be the difference, be an EACH Champion.

EACH Volunteer Services and Development Manager Hannah Milbourne said: “We are in need of volunteers to join our fun and friendly team and help support our fundraising activities and events across East Anglia.

“By agreeing to help, people will be joining together and becoming part of something that helps their local community.

“We offer a range of opportunities that are fun and flexible, and can be done at a time to suit you. I believe there really is something everyone can do.

“It’s about volunteering your way and whatever you do will make a big difference, helping us raise vital funds to support children and young people with life-threatening conditions in your local area.

“Like lots of charities, we’ve seen a reduction in volunteers since the pandemic, so just getting involved now will make a real difference, even if it’s just for an hour or two. It really is so valuable to us.

“Volunteering can give you the chance to attend fun local events and meet new people, all while helping a local charity, so please do come and join us.”

EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.

The charity organised a successful campaign earlier this year to recruit more volunteers for its retail sector.

Anyone interested in getting involved can contact EACH Volunteer Services via 01223 205183.

Notes to Editors

“Without EACH I really don’t believe we would have made it this far together as a family. They make a really hard time just that little easier to deal with.”

  • We care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, and support their families.
  • We offer families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support, including where their child dies – at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich).
  • Our family-centred approach includes specialist nursing care, symptom management support, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies and counselling, all meeting the individual needs of the child, young person and whole family.
  • We are recognised as leaders in our field, with a reputation for excellence and commitment to pioneering development and innovation.
  • We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income and this year need to raise £5.5 million from fundraising and £5.4 million in income from our shops. The year before the pandemic we received just 16% of our total income from statutory sources.
  • EACH Royal Patron – Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
