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…

Harper Knight, aged two, from Thetford, Norfolk has been dressing up each Clap for Carers Thursday at 8pm as one of the nation’s key workers for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). Mum, Anna Knight, 34, Owner and Operator of Little City Norfolk, had been in the process of launching the mobile role play franchise for children before lockdown. Anna was still receiving new deliveries regularly full of costumes and props for children during the first few weeks of lockdown, which greatly excited Harper in a time where she was exceptionally upset to not see her grandparents or playmates. One Thursday evening Harper decided to wear a police officer outfit during the time of Clap for Carers applause. Anna took photos of her and posted them to her social media accounts.…

Jessica Bingham, seven years old, a pupil at Poringland Primary School, has run her first marathon throughout the month of May for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

With the charity’s 43 shops across the region closed, a select few of which are set to reopen on 15 June, and fundraising events postponed or cancelled, EACH has lost a significant amount of income.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is benefiting from not having to pay rent on several of its shops in Norfolk over the next few months, thanks to the generosity of supportive landlords. EACH has 43 shops across the region, but had to close them in March in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. That, combined with supporters’ fundraising activities and their own events having to be cancelled, prompted the charity to appeal for financial support across a wide range of service providers that included landlords. Among the landlords to have provided a boost are Stephen and Carol Sell, from Gissing, two of three co-owners of the property occupied by EACH in Norwich Road, Long Stratton. They, as well as the third co-owner, have given their tenant a six-month rent-free period. Stephen…

Breckland Council’s work to support vulnerable residents through the coronavirus pandemic has been boosted by a donation from Norwich City Football Club and Norwich City Community Sports Foundation. There are more than 3,600 people in the district who the NHS consider to be ‘extremely vulnerable’ and the council is supporting them by making welfare calls and, where needed, distributing medicines and food parcels.
