nook schools project recognition wall

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. The schools below have kindly raised the required the funds and so we wanted to show our appreciation by giving them recognition on our website.

  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future 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
  • 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
