The nook appeal

friends of the nook

We need a new hospice to meet the demand for our Services in Norfolk.  We have outgrown our current hospice in Quidenham; a very old building over two storeys. Accessibility and flexibility within the building is restricted and there isn’t scope to expand.

We have planning permission for a five acre site in the parish of Framingham Earl, five miles south of Norwich.

We are looking for 250 people who are willing to give £1,200 a year for three years to help us reach a target of £900,000 to pay for all or part of the family suite at the nook and future services at EACH.

As a friend of the nook you can give £1,200 once a year or £100 per month over a three year period by direct debit, or a one-off payment of £3,600.

In recognition of your support you will receive the following:
 
  • A welcome letter from our Chief Executive
  • Regular updates on the appeal and development of the nook
  • Your name/s will be listed on a special dedicated friends of the nook page on the EACH website during the project
  • A special thank you certificate from our Chief Executive once the project has been completed
  • Invitation to a special friends of the nook event to look around the nook once it is close to completion
  • An EACH pin badge.
Download our friends of the nook leaflet for more information. Or you can download, print and fill in our friends of the nook direct debit form to become a member. 

 
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’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
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’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
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’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
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. 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
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’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
