nook schools project

We need your help to raise £10 million to provide a new purpose-built children's hospice in Norfolk, called the nook.

There are over 200 schools in Norfolk - If every school raised £400 by March 2019 then collectively you would fund the cost of the soft play for the nook.

We have started building and with more funds still to be raised you can help us finish.

There are lots of ways you could raise money including:

  • holding a Purple Day celebrating EACH's brand colour - invite pupils to donate £1 to wear purple, hold a purple cake sale or even spray your hair purple!
  • organise a sponsored read, walk or run - maybe tie it in with the daily mile initiative
  • join other local schools this Easter by organising a bunny hop around the playground - every pupil donates £11 to receive a pair of bunny ears
  • hold a collection at the end of a summer show or nativity play
  • select EACH as a beneficiary from your school fayre

Saying thank you

Every school that raises £400 will receive:

  • the opportunity for a speaker to attend a school assembly to explain more about the nook appeal
  • copies of literature and a family story DVD to show to pupils as appropriate
  • recognition on our website
  • a special printed certificate to display in the school
  • a thank you in the nook newsletter
  • a black engraved brick with the school/year group/class or house name which will b located in the garden at the nook.

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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
  • 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
