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.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has received £1,510.35 for its nook appeal, in addition to a teddy bear, from the Inner Wheel Club of Watton.

During President Lesley Cowling’s year in office, the club fundraised for the nook appeal and Rocky, the teddy bear, was an ever-present mascot at their activities.

Tal Williams, EACH Community Fundraiser for the nook, recently attended a club meeting to receive the proceeds from their efforts. Rocky was also handed over in the hope he could continue his work in other places around Norfolk.

A new East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) shop in Poringland, on the doorstep of the charity’s new hospice site, has been declared officially open by chartered surveyor Ben Du Brow.

Next door to Budgens in Overtons Way, the shop will offer a range of high-quality goods, helping to fund the care and support of children and young people with life-threatening conditions and their families.

Maria Hall, EACH Shop Manager, said: “We’re delighted to have opened our doors! Thank you to the generous customers who together spent £324 in our first hour of trading. Thanks also to Ben. It was fantastic to have him here cutting the ribbon.”

On Sunday we held The Tia's Treasures Raffle for Young Epilepsy, since Toby (youngest member of the Tia's Treasures Team) received a diagnosis of Epilepsy we have decided to focus Tia's Treasures on fundraising for Young Epilepsy.

Tia decided to write letters to local businesses and hold a Raffle, she set herself a target to sell 1000 tickets which she soon achieved and this meant £200 had been raised for Young Epilepsy.

Tia wasn't going to stop there she soon had us buying a second book of tickets and again set herself a target to sell another 1000 tickets raising another £200 for The East of England Ambulance Service.

Volunteers from Norfolk Deaf Association's (NDA) Hearing Support Service visited NDA's new head office at Meridian Business Park, Norwich on Friday, June 22 for a lunchtime reception to mark the charity's 120th birthday.
 
Aliona Derrett, Chief Executive Officer, Norfolk Deaf Association explained: “Our Hearing Support Service looks after 11,000 Norfolk residents with NHS supplied hearing aids. We could not operate the Service without our volunteers, so it was a pleasure to invite them to our new head office to celebrate our 120th birthday. We are always looking to recruit more volunteers as our service continues expand.”

Norwich, Swaffham and Diss opticians Dipple & Conway are urging the county’s business community to show their creativity this summer in aid of high-profile children’s charity, Break.

Dipple and Conway are long-term supporters of Break, having raised £15,000 over the past 12 years. Break provides residential and short break facilities for children and young people with special needs.

The directors enlisted the help of two clients, identical twins Elizabeth Wilkinson and Jane Woolston, to help launch awareness of one the Norfolk’s most colourful summer fundraising spectacles – the Grand Norwich Duck Race 2018.

Georgie’s walk to remember her dad

This June, 17-year-old Georgie Boast from Great Plumstead is embarking on a walk to remember her beloved father. Along with dozens of others, she and her family will be doing the Sponsored Walk of Smiles for Nelson’s Journey, Norfolk’s child bereavement charity, to remember her dad, Mark, who died in 2010 after a collision with a van whilst riding his motorbike, when Georgie was just 9.

Along with her mum, Louise, and siblings Ashleigh, 15, and Serena, 12, Georgie will join other families who have also been bereaved, to remember Mark’s life and walk in his memory. They are encouraging others who have also been bereaved to join them, and raising money to support the charity which helped them through some of their most difficult times
