EACH receives £5,000 donation from Tom and Anna Trybull

Norwich City footballer Tom Trybull and his wife Anna have donated £5,000 to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), plus a bag of clothes as the charity gears up to reopen five of its shops.

The money comes from sales of children’s book The Story of Tommy T. Tommy T is a pigeon trying to make his name in football. The story is written by Anna, based on the exploits of her husband and encourages young people to follow their dreams.

It will go towards EACH’s fundraising appeal set up at the start of lockdown to address a forecasted income gap of £1.8m over 12 weeks, caused by the cancellation and postponement of fundraising events, and the closure of the charity’s 43 shops.

Following the government announcement that non-essential shops can reopen from Monday (15 June), EACH has decided to open five of its outlets in Norfolk, in a phased reopening plan the good cause hopes will eventually restore the pre-lockdown success of its high street portfolio.

Tom and Anna, who are soon to welcome their first child, presented a cheque and their clothing donation to EACH outside one of the five shops, in Poringland, earlier today (Thursday, 11 June).

Tom, a defensive midfielder from Germany who joined the Canaries in 2017, said: “The morale of the book Anna wrote is for young people to believe in their dreams and EACH helps to support children and their families living with life-threatening conditions to reach milestones, and improve their quality of life. As a person in the public eye, I hope to have a positive impact on others in the community and we’re both delighted to donate money and clothes to help make a difference to children and EACH’s fundraising appeal.”

Stacey Addison, EACH Major Supporter Fundraiser, said: “We can’t thank Tom and Anna enough for choosing us to benefit from sales of their fantastic book, and we’re delighted to receive a clothing donation on top of that! The money will help us continue providing vital care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions, and support for their families, and the awareness this will raise is hugely helpful at such a challenging and uncertain time.”

EACH shops normally bring in £100,000 a week in income. The first five to reopen their doors, as EACH makes sure it can balance the implementation of new safety precautions, the needs of staff and volunteers, and the commerciality of its outlets, will be the charity’s shops in Plumstead Road, Unthank Road and Bowthorpe Main Centre, all in Norwich, as well as the one in Poringland and another in Long Stratton. EACH will also be reopening its eBay and Amazon outlets.

Tom and Norwich City are due to get back to Premier League action at Carrow Road against Southampton next Friday (19 June), when the season restarts behind closed doors.

  • Can you spare some time to volunteer at EACH's popular Wymondham shop?

    More volunteers are needed to help out at a popular charity shop in Wymondham.

    The East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices store is based at Anchor House, in Market Place, and open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm and between 10am and 4pm on Sunday.

    Shop Manager Becky Cooke is keen to hear from anyone who might be interested in joining her team and supporting the cause. She said: “We’d love to hear from anyone interested in joining us. As many extra pairs of hands as possible would be wonderful. We’re looking for all-rounders who fancy helping with a variety of jobs, like sorting, pricing and operating the till. However, if anyone has any specific requests that’s fine, too. We’ll always do our best to cater for everyone. For instance, we have separate toy and book rooms and some people just love working in there.We’re a friendly bunch and anyone who joins us is assured of a warm welcome. Everyone’s equal and we all get stuck in together, as part of a team.”

  • Mary is ensuring material gain for EACH

    Creative Mary Hyder is proving a real-life ‘material girl’ and helping raise vital funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

    The 69-year-old, who volunteers in the charity’s Swaffham shop, has teamed up with a local upholstery business to source high-quality fabric for EACH customers.

    The move is already paying handsome dividends and hopes are high it could prove a money-spinner for the Market Place store.

    Mary said: “It all started when I popped into Narborough Upholstery and got talking to (owner) Simon Emery, telling him about my role with EACH. When he told me I’d be welcome to look in the remnants box, I assumed it would be full of odds and ends and bits and pieces. What I found was far more than that, though. There were yards of high-quality fabric and more than enough to cover things like chairs and stools."

  • Little Matthew raises more than £100 for EACH after enjoying our Bubble Rush bonanza

    Big-hearted Matthew Hercog-Chan was bursting with pride after tackling a popular Bubble Rush event and raising more than £100 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

    The spirited six-year-old celebrated his birthday the day after but, instead of having a party, asked family, friends and classmates to sponsor him.

    Matthew, who loves space, maths, languages and learning to play the guitar and ukulele, took part in the King’s Lynn Bubble Rush, at The Walks, on 26th September.

    He completed the circuit twice, clocking up 5 km, and was joined by proud dad Steve and mum Aga.

    Steve said: “It was a fantastic day and Matthew loved his first ever Bubble Rush. We’re incredibly proud and he was determined to raise as much as he could for EACH. Instead of a party, we decided to attend the event and turn it into an adventure weekend, asking friends and family to sponsor him and make a donation rather than buying a present".
