As a community business it’s very important to us to highlight the work of local charities in Norfolk throughout the year.

As Christmas draws near we ask our awesome readers to spare a thought for the children who will be spending time in Hospital or in a Hospice at Christmas, and we have provided East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices with the opportunity to appeal for contributions. In doing so you will help this wonderful local charity to continue providing comfort and support to families in a most difficult time, and perhaps even making your Christmas gifts a bit more meaningful and easier at the same time.

Buying that perfect gift for your loved ones at Christmas can be a challenge. East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) have taken the stress out of present buying and come up with a special gift – that you don’t even have to wrap.

From specialist nursing kits that can help a family receive care at home to the bereavement sessions that help supports families through an unimaginably difficult time, a Gift of Care will have a real impact on the lives of local families.

There are a selection of gift cards to choose from ranging in prices from £5 to £35 and are available to buy online and in all EACH shops. Whichever card you choose to buy, each Gift of Care represents a life changed for the better.

Once you’ve made your purchase the charity will send you a special gift card in the post. You can then write on the tag and give it to someone special.

£5 could buy art supplies, helping a child enjoy an art therapy session.

£10 could pay for an essential nursing kit for our nurses to use when providing care in the family home.

£20 could help fund a support group for siblings.

£35 could pay for an hour of short break care for a child at one of our hospices or in the family’s own home.
