Charitable folk with a head for heights have abseiled down Norwich’s iconic Millennium building The Forum to raise £10,000.

A total of 98 courageous individuals, ranging in age from 12 to 78, took the 50ft (15m) plunge in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Emma Benstead, EACH Norfolk Events Fundraiser, said: “We were so excited to hold our abseil at the iconic Forum building for the second year running and were overwhelmed by how many participants took part! They included a lady celebrating her 70th birthday and a girl her 16th.

Villagers of Rockland St Mary raised £2,100 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) at a family fun day to celebrate Norfolk Day.

The event was organised by Wally, Lorraine and Luke Mason, plus landlord of The New Inn Terry Webb.

It featured a demonstration of traditional reed cutting, with grandfather Wally an experienced hand at what was a common sight on the Norfolk Broads for decades before changes in technology. There was also live music and a variety of stalls.

A group of seven Norfolk friends are to attempt both the National Three Peaks Challenge and the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in just two days.

Andrew Sabberton, Chris Yates, Steve Reed, Tom Hurd, Colin Jones, Kevin Rooney and Elliot Greenleaf aim to conquer Scotland’s Ben Nevis, England’s Scaffell Pike and Wales’ Snowdon, followed by Yorkshire’s Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent, on 28 and 29 September. They will be assisted by a support crew of three as the six peaks together will have a total walking distance of 47 miles (76km) and ascent of 4,649m (15,252ft).

A charity shop in North Walsham is to champion reading for children as it launches a kids book club.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), in The Terrace, off Market Place, will allow youngsters to pick up a new book at half price or for free when they trade in an old one.

Sandy Creasy, EACH Shop Manager, hopes the club will encourage children to enjoy the freedom of reading and share that with friends.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has received £550 towards its nook appeal courtesy of a new and rapidly expanding Norfolk golf group.

The Railway Tavern Golf Society, based in Poringland, was established in March this year and already has 48 members.

It recently held a golf day at Barnham Broom, in which 34 players took part and raised £1,100 to be split equally between the nook appeal and Meadowgreen Dog Rescue Centre.

Adrian Ewing, Secretary, said: “The nook appeal’s raising funds to complete EACH’s new hospice being built just round the corner from the pub, so we wanted to support that.

Ride for Life raises over £30,000 for EACH

Over £30,000 has been raised for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) by 26 intrepid cyclists who rode 200-plus miles across the region.

EACH’s Ride for Life started last Friday (20 July) and finished on Sunday at the home of headline sponsor Johnston Logistics UK, in Snetterton. There were overnight stops in between at Premier Inn Ipswich North and Premier Inn Cambridge A14 J32. The route through the East Anglian countryside also saw riders visit EACH’s three hospices - The Treehouse in Ipswich, Milton just north of Cambridge and Quidenham in the Norfolk countryside.

The main peloton was joined by seven other cyclists, doing individual legs of ride, over the course of the three days.

New Revolution (NR) Health & Fitness Club raised £1,650 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) at its second annual eight-hour ‘spinathon’.

Eight members took part in the event, that sees people riding a stationary bike, also enjoying a barbecue, bar, raffle and live music.

Nathan Gostling, NR Director, said: “I’d like to thank all the fantastic members who took part in this eight-hour challenge and everyone who turned up to cheer them on past the finish line. At NR Health & Fitness Club in Wymondham we love supporting EACH in their fundraising and over two years we have raised more than £2,000. We’re looking forward to the next charity boxing event we have planned, when again we hope to raise money for EACH.”

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is asking supporters to help apply the finishing touches to its nook appeal and, in doing so, leave a lasting legacy at its new Norfolk hospice.

The nook appeal has just surpassed the £8 million mark and EACH wants to generate a large part of the remaining funds through a new campaign called Pave the Path.

Pave the Path is your chance to sponsor a red clay brick that will line the garden path and be laid once building of the nook is complete.

Everyone who sponsors a brick will be invited to view the path once it is complete.

An annual Norwich street party has raised hundreds of pounds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Residents of Wood Street, off Kingsley Road in the city centre, organised children’s activities, crafts, a raffle and more for their day of entertainment.

They enjoyed glorious weather and chair of the organising committee Sarah Falkingham has since been able to send EACH £611. Previous parties have raised money for a range of good causes, including Nelson’s Journey.

The nook appeal has received an £822 boost courtesy of the Waveney Lodge of Freemasons.

The lodge, that meets at the Centenary Rooms in Bungay, raised the money through a ladies’ evening in Great Yarmouth.

In acknowledgement of their efforts, EACH Norfolk Community Fundraiser Tim Jenkins recently paid a visit, filling them in on the progress of the nook.

He was also presented with a big cheque by freemasons David Langton, Jane Capie, Bob Clark and Mark Morris.
