East Anglia Children's Hospice is asking us to add just one more present to your list this Christmas.

The Light up EACH life campaign is your chance to remember a loved one or show support to families who use the hospices.

All you have to do is buy a light for their virtual sensory wall - there's space for a personal message too.

 

EACH cares for children and young people in our area who are living with life-threatening conditions and illnesses. 

By buying a light, you can help support children like 6-year-old Benny who has a rare and aggressive form of cancer. 

KLFM spoke to his Dad, Kevin, when the Duchess of Cambridge opened The Nook back in November.

"I'm just honoured to be his dad.

"My kid's my world, I absolutely adore my family. He's just my hero and he's everybody else's hero in the North Norfolk community. The most powerful thing in life is love. 

"When you get dealt the card which unfortunately my son's been dealt with love is the only thing that's going to save him."

Benny, who lives at East Runton, near Cromer, with his parents Kevin and Julie and siblings Brannigan, Ruby and Roseanna, was found to have an inoperable brain tumour earlier this year.

He added that the care Benny has been given by EACH is great:

"Everybody has been absolutely incredible here. 

"The nurses, the whole staff from top to bottom have been amazing. 

"They've made us feel at home, it's an absolutely amazing place." 

The lights start at £5 and you can get involved here.
