As well as being able to browse for a bargain, customers of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) are being treated to cakes. A guess the name of a giant teddy bear competition is running and any children dropping by can pick up a free book. The shop is on the doorstep of the nook, EACH’s new hospice that has been under construction since November 2017

A Wymondham choir group are among those helping East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) in the final stretch of its nook appeal. The appeal, to raise £10 million for the building of a hospice, to transform children’s palliative care for Norfolk, recently hit £9.1 million. Construction of the new building got under way in November 2017 and EACH hopes it can become operational this summer, but needs to raise the remaining funds before then. VivaVoices is among those helping to ensure that happens. A recent choir performance raised £286 and, after, EACH’s Louisa Smart met the choir’s managing director and leader, Graeme Hopson, to receive the proceeds.
