Orchard Toys smashes its £10,000 fundraising target for EACH  

Wymondham-based Orchard Toys has smashed its £10,000 fundraising target for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) – and presented a cheque for £11,125. It follows in-house fundraising among staff, who have held cake sales and charity football matches, alongside customer and JustGiving donations.

In particular, customers have been encouraged to donate if they take advantage of Orchard Toys’ misplaced pieces service, whereby if anyone loses a playing piece from their favourite game they can request free replacement pieces.

Orchard Toys has been raising funds for EACH since 2011, and plans to continue pledging donations to the children’s hospice charity.

Managing Director Simon Newbery said: “There’s a real ‘synergy’ between the two companies, and we’re proud to have a long-standing relationship with EACH – a local charity doing great hospice work here in the heart of our community.”

Laura Southcott, EACH Corporate Fundraising Assistant, added: “We’re extremely grateful to everyone at Orchard Toys and their wonderful customers. It’s great to have their continued support. It’s a phenomenal amount of money and will make a real difference.”

EACH supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. It has three hospices, including The Nook, at Framingham Earl in Norfolk.

Notes to Editors

“We’d heard about EACH and knew they were a fantastic cause that had supported families we knew, but we never thought we’d be the ones that needed them! Sadly, as fantastic as it is, their service will always be required, and every child who needs their help deserves to have it.”

  • 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.
