Youngsters will be jumping for joy during a special Easter fundraiser at InflateBounce

Energetic youngsters will have an extra spring in their step when they bounce into action at a children’s hospice fundraiser.

InflateBounce, in Wyton, is hosting the special event in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

The inflatable play centre is donating £1 from every child’s ticket sold on Wednesday, 13th April.

It hopes to raise hundreds of pounds for the charity, which supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire.

InflateBounce owner Chris Keen said: “Hopefully we have a very busy day and manage to raise lots of money for EACH.

“We wanted to do something to help as it’s such a special and important charity here in Cambridgeshire and across East Anglia.

“The staff and volunteers do a phenomenal job and this is our way of showing support, by raising money for a very worthy cause.”

A child’s ticket costs £12.50 (an adult ticket is £3) and there are three sessions available – 9am until 12pm, 12.30pm until 3.30pm and 4pm until 7pm.

Advance booking is highly recommended via www.inflatebounce.net or by calling 0800 0437620.

EACH Corporate Fundraiser Ella Walston (pictured with InflateBounce junior manager Jack Cursons, left, and head of software and media Aaron Hall) said: “This is a great and much appreciated gesture from our friends at InflateBounce.

“We hope the children have lots of fun, while also helping raise vital funds to allow us to continue our important work.”

InflateBounce is in Manor Farm, Sawtry Way, Wyton (PE28 2DY) while EACH has three hospices, including one at Milton.

Seven of the charity’s 44 retail shops are in Cambridgeshire – Histon Road and Cherry Hinton Road, both in Cambridge, Cherry Hinton, Ely, Huntingdon, Soham and Whittlesey.

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.
