The Nook Appeal
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices are due to leave their current site in south Norfolk despite it being situated in a picturesque and peaceful country estate. The listed red-brick building has been home to Norfolk’s only children’s hospice for more than 23 years.
Upon entering the building it becomes apparent that the EACH Charity have outgrown their current home in Quidenham. However, the prospect of a £10m purpose-built hospice at Framingham Earl is one that excites staff, which would be bigger and provide services that Quidenham is not able to provide.
With a £10,000 goal, we at i4 Recruitment have plenty to do over the course of the next 12 months. Where most would see this as work, we see it as an excuse to get out of the office and try something new. Bake sale you say? Just kidding, we’ll be doing parachute jumps, abseiling, long distance cycling, Norwich City football tickets, getting stuck in at the Lord Mayor’s Procession in Norwich and much more.
You can keep track of everything we do with EACH Charity via our blog and the links below. Fancy getting involved? Just get in touch, we’d love for more to take part and contribute towards this great cause.
