A leading children’s charity has launched details of its “fun, packed and varied” fundraising events for 2023.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has eagerly-awaited dates in the diary, including a pulse-racing tree climb and bungee jump in Thetford Forest.

Last year, 4,850 people took part in EACH events, raising an eye-watering £306,000, and hopes are high that the latter figure can be eclipsed in 2023.

Details of all the events are now on the charity’s website and there is an early-bird discount scheme for anyone signing up by the end of January.

EACH Events Fundraiser Emma Cook said: “We’re incredibly excited about our calendar of events and, in terms of income generated, hoping it will be our biggest and best year yet. That would be amazing. It’s such a fun, packed and varied schedule and, in addition to staple events that always prove popular, we’re looking forward to a couple of new additions. One is our Tree Top Drop Challenge, which involves a 20-metre tree climb and bungee jump at Thorpe Woodland Adventure, in Thetford Forest. Events fundraising is vitally important to our charity and, by signing up, the public are directly helping us to continue our work caring for children and young people with life-threatening conditions, as well as supporting their families.”

EACH’s fundraising diary kicks off with its Ride for Life event, from 12th to 14th May. The popular challenge, for keen cyclists and amateurs alike, takes participants on a journey through the stunning East Anglian countryside. The one-day cost is £35, with participants asked to raise at least £150, while the three-day figures are £150 and £750 respectively. Accommodation is included.

The annual Cromer to Great Yarmouth Pier 2 Pier walk is scheduled for 10th June.  This fundraiser takes participants on a 32-mile walk along the beautiful Norfolk Coastal Path. Early-bird tickets cost £50 or £60, with the latter including a morning coach transfer from Great Yarmouth to Cromer.

EACH’s foam-filled Norwich Bubble Rush will take place at the Norfolk Showground on 16th July and the course once again features four bubble stations along a 2.5km route.  Participants can do one lap or double their enjoyment by completing the circuit twice. Each bubble station has a cannon which pumps out coloured foam to create a four-foot deep bubble bath. The early-bird prices are £4 for children under four, £10 for children aged four to 15, £17.50 for adults and £50 for a family ticket (two adults and two children).

The new Tree Top Drop Challenge is taking place on 11th August and the cost for both adults and children (who must be over the age of eight) is £20. 

“It’s a diverse selection of events and we hope there’s something for everyone, from those that are more physically demanding to others that will appeal to families with children,” added Emma. As a charity, we pride ourselves on offering the very best, world-class care and support to children, young people and families and funds raised from these events are invaluable. We hope people take advantage of our early-bird discount scheme by signing up as soon as possible.”

EACH has three hospices – The Nook, in Framingham Earl, near Norwich, The Treehouse, In Ipswich and at Milton, near Cambridge.

  • Chatsbrook Santa Drive raises more than £4,200 for EACH

    A convoy of dazzling performance cars turned heads and put smiles on faces after taking a spin to the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) base in Framingham Earl. The eye-catching Santa Drive featured 45 gleaming machines and was organised by Chatsbrook Finance.

    The fantastic fleet included 25 Porsches, in addition to Maclaren’s, Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Aston Martins.

    The convoy started at Chatsbrook’s Ketteringham Hall headquarters, in Church Road, Ketteringham, and snaked its way just over 11 miles to The Nook, with Santa at the wheel of the Chatsbook Defender. 

    Children and young people receiving care, in addition to siblings, staff and their families, were able to sit in the cars and pose for pictures. The hospice team also invited eight young people with Muscular Dystrophy.

  • Families enjoyed a “magical” day of festive fun at The Nook.

    Families enjoyed a “magical” day of festive fun at The Nook.

    The East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) base was transformed into a stunning Winter Wonderland, complete with sparkling coloured lights, and there was a visit from Father Christmas.

    Families enjoyed a walk around the grounds, making reindeer food, designing and decorating a wreath and colouring snowmen and Christmas tree shapes, while children and parents also wrote and sent their lists to Santa.

    EACH Play Specialist Heidi Foster said: “Our Winter Wonderland was magical. The Nook looked absolutely beautiful and everywhere outside was lit up by our wonderful caretakers. Everyone tucked into some amazing food, provided by the facilities team, and there was entertainment from Jeff Sharkey, of Musical Keys. Families enjoyed playing games and using musical instruments and we were also visited by a miniature pony called Jack, who was brought along by his owner, Ali.  He let children stroke him and feed him carrots.”

  • Nick Taylor's Peddars Way walking challenge for EACH

    A history lover is stepping into action for an epic walking challenge along a 49-mile ancient Roman road.

    Nick Taylor will be joined by friend Adam Herring and together the intrepid duo plan to trek the entire length of the Peddars Way.

    They expect it to take two and half days and plan to camp along the way. The long-distance footpath starts at Knettishall Heath Country Park, in Suffolk, and winds its way through changing countryside to Holme-next-the-Sea, on the North Norfolk coast.

    Nick is taking on the challenge over Easter next April and has set himself a target of raising at least £1,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

  • The Railway Taverner's Golf Society in Poringland raises £2700 for EACH

    Kind-hearted golfers clubbed together and raised a record-breaking £2,700 ‘fore’ East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

    The Railway Taverner’s Golf Society, in Poringland, is a regular supporter of the charity but raised the ‘par’ with its efforts throughout 2022.

    Club secretary and treasurer Adey Ewing said: “We were thrilled to raise so much and feel a strong connection with EACH. One of its hospices is right on our doorstep, around the corner from our pub, and it’s a charity we’ve been involved with since The Nook Appeal (launched to raise funds for EACH’s Framingham Earl hospice, opened by The Princess of Wales in November 2019). “It’s a marvellous and very worthwhile cause and we hope this donation makes a difference.”

  • Norfolk Ghostbusters prove super(natural) fundraisers

    Who you gonna call? Sci-fi fanatics have become un-boo-lievable fundraisers by using their passion for cult classic Ghostbusters to support East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

    The Norfolk Ghostbusters are a group of die-hard film fans who dress as characters from the blockbuster and attend comic book conventions. They have bucket collections for EACH, as well as using banners, flags and balloons to raise awareness of the charity, which supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions. 

    The group have been raising funds throughout the year and recently delivered a cheque for £379 to The Nook, in Framingham Earl, where they met EACH community fundraising assistant Megan Kemp.
