Duchess of Cambridge Supports new £10million Appeal
8:17am 25th November 2014
One of the most famous women in the world is helping to launch a new appeal for a new Norfolk Hospice.
The Duchess of Cambridge is helping EACH, which supports dozens of seriously ill West Norfolk Children each month.
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices are launching an appeal to raise 10 million pounds for a brand new facility.
They say their old building at Quidenham is too far away for most parents and no longer fit for purpose.
They want to move their services to Framingham Earl which is far more accessible from this side of the county.
Rose Peasgood is the Norfolk fundraiser...
“Quidenham has been a fantastic home from home environment for over 20 years but it really is very isolated. The new hospice at Framingham Earl would improve accessibility to people who need our services from all over the county. That includes the 38 children, young people and family members from King’s Lynn and West Norfolk who are using our services at the moment.
We have a really high demand for our services in Norfolk and currently we can’t offer all the things that our hospices in Milton and Ipswich do. Things like hydrotherapy, which Quidenham just doesn’t have the room for. We just can’t offer that to children and their families in Norfolk at the moment.”
