Great Yarmouth Hippodrome supports nook appeal

Great Yarmouth Hippodrome supports nook appeal

Apr 28, 2015
The Hippodrome at Great Yarmouth; the family run entertainment venue, is the latest company to sign up to the nook business network scheme.

Run by the Jay family, who have supported the charity previously, they’ve set themselves a target of £15,000. They’ve already got their fundraising off to a flying start with a donation of £5,650 which was raised through a bucket collection and other fundraising at every performance of their Christmas Spectacular and Easter Pirate Shows.

The Hippodrome will continue to hold bucket collections, inviting the audience to support the appeal, at their shows throughout the year.    

Peter Jay of The Hippodrome, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be supporting EACH with their  nook appeal. The work they do in terms of caring for and supporting local families at an unimaginably difficult time is fantastic. We want to play our part as a local family running a local business in doing what we can to help support and make the vision of a new children’s hospice in Norfolk a reality.”

  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

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