On the 25th of November 2014, the Duchess of Cambridge will attend the East Anglia’s Children Hospices (EACH) Norfolk Capital Appeal launch at the Norfolk Showground in Norwich. Kate, Patron since January 2012, will meet with families and other supporters of EACH before joining the community in observing the launch of the appeal.
EACH supports families and care for young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. The care and support provided is tailored to each family, ensuring care not only at the hospital, but in their homes and communities as well. EACH has three hospice locations in Ipswich, Milton and Quidenham.
EACH will launch a £10 million fundraising appeal to not only build a new children’s hospice but equip the hospice for families in Norfolk.
The current Norfolk hospice in Quidenham is one of the oldest in the UK and the current facility can not meet the needs of a rapidly changing medical environment. A new hospice for Norfolk will bring the community up to speed to the capabilities of the EACH services in Cambridgeshire, Essex and Suffolk.
