Barnham Broom will be supporting, local mental health charity, Norfolk and Waveney Mind throughout 2022, as they name them as their charity of the year. Norfolk and Waveney Mind offer an extensive range of mental health services, along with associated training, advice and information. They work to reduce the stigma associated with mental health, support people in the recovery and champion better services for all. Health and wellbeing has been a strong focus at Barnham Broom, particularly with their recent campaign Time For You, which invited individuals to the resort to relax, feel at ease and prioritise themself and their own time. This strong focus on wellbeing was one of the many reasons Barnham Broom wanted to support Norfolk and Waveney Mind.

Norwich City legend Grant Holt conquered his fears and plunged 13,000 feet for a daredevil skydive in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). The Canaries hero took on the adrenaline-charged fundraiser at Beccles Airfield on Friday morning, along with ARC Group Managing Director Chris Ford. Grant is an ambassador for the company, which has chosen EACH to be its charity partner in 2022. “I’m petrified of heights but when I woke up and even when I arrived I was surprisingly calm and looking forward to it,” said the former striker, who helped Norwich to back-to-back promotions and was named player-of-the-year three times at Carrow Road. I wasn’t too bad in the plane, either, and it was only when the door opened that I thought ‘oh wow, here we go’. …

Music maestro Barry Holden has taken to shop volunteering to ‘strum’ up more funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). The 76-year-old has raised thousands of pounds for children’s charities, including EACH, by staging a series of Live Aid-style concerts in North Walsham. The first was in 1986, inspired by Sir Bob Geldof’s global fundraiser, and another took place in January 2005 in the aftermath of the devastating Boxing Day tsunami. Barry’s gigs have since taken place every year, apart from the last two because of COVID, and raised in the region of £100,000. As if that was not enough, Barry started volunteering in EACH’s North Walsham shop six months ago and he was speaking during week one of the charity’s We Need You campaign. The recruitment drive started on…

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is reflecting on a busy 2021 and feeling ever thankful for its incredible community of supporters after the recent success of its Christmas campaign, Gift of Life. Launched in mid-November, the Gift of Life campaign asked EAAA supporters to donate to the 24/7 air ambulance charity this Christmas, to help the crews continue to be there for people in their darkest hour over the festive period. The campaign also encouraged supporters to send a message of support for the crews which could be hung on a Christmas tree in each of the EAAA operational bases, one in Norwich and one in Cambridge, to help give all of the EAAA staff a morale boost. The charity is overwhelmed to have received more than £80,000 in donations…

There was magic in the air when a dashing dragon stomped its way into the grounds of a children’s hospice. The mythical model has been donated by Norfolk’s ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure and will spend the next 12 months at The Nook – East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ (EACH) base in Framingham Earl, near Norwich. Among those to drop him off were Dippy, the attraction’s dinosaur mascot, who met children including Bradley Jackson (pictured). Adam Goymour, Park Director at ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure, said: “With Christmas just round the corner, we wanted to spread a little festive cheer to those who need it most and we hope the children and families at The Nook enjoy the beautifully-painted dragon. Dippy and our staff enjoyed making the special delivery and it’s lovely to support and…

Road all about it! Campervan enthusiasts got in gear and clubbed together to raise thousands of pounds’ worth of toys for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). The fundraiser was organised by the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire branches of Dubs of Vanarchy (a national Volkswagen campervan members’ club). After a photo opportunity on the drive at The Nook hospice, members in eight vans, plus a convertible Beetle, hand-delivered the goodies to EACH’s nearby offices at Manor Farm Barns. They were loaded with hundreds of gifts donated by members, family and friends, in addition to a box of toys received from Matthews Transport, in Great Yarmouth. The group also made a donation of £1,270 - £870 of which came from Alan Brimble, of ADT Transport, in St Helens. A Facebook fundraising page…

Kind-hearted police officers and staff clubbed together to provide a sweet treat for youngsters receiving care from a children’s hospice. Staff from Norfolk and Suffolk Constabulary handed over more than 350 gingerbread houses during a special presentation at The Nook – the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) base in Framingham Earl, just outside Norwich. They will be distributed to families being supported by the charity, which cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions. Sergeant Donna Flannagan helped oversee the collection, which was organised by nine members of Norfolk and Suffolk Constabulary’s Information Management United, based in Wymondham. They set themselves a modest target but, thanks to the support of family and friends, managed to buy 366 boxes. People either donated the gingerbread or made a cash donation which…

Fancy hitting the road and helping support a leading children’s charity? East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is on the lookout for volunteers to get involved with its daily van runs. This could involve being a driver or going along to help and support one of the existing drivers, based at the charity’s Retail Distribution Centre (RDC) in Thetford. Supply Chain Manager Roger Leggett said: “Our resources are fully stretched and any extra help would make a massive difference. We have four vans and three of them take stock to the various EACH shops, which are dotted throughout East Anglia. The fourth is used more for furniture runs – both collecting and dropping off – mainly in and around Norwich. It might be that someone can drive one of the vans…
