East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH)
A message from our nominated charity: EACH
‘East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) provides care and support for life-threatened children, young people and their families across the region.
Our hospices aren’t just about end of life care; they’re often happy and fun places where young people can live their lives to the full.
They are places where families feel safe, at home and where they can spend quality time together; enabling parents to be parents and not just care-givers.
Of the many services which EACH provides, music therapy is one of our most popular. It is based on the understanding that all human beings are inherently musical so music therapy is used as a powerful means of communication and self-expression when words are not always possible or adequate.
EACH relies on voluntary donations for the majority of its income. Every year we need to raise over £5 million from fundraising activities and generate an income of £2.5 million from our shops.
Put simply, the more funds we raise, the bigger the difference we can make to local children and families who are often struggling to come to terms with the life-threatening illness of their child.
Thank you all so much for supporting EACH at this very special event and enabling us to continue providing these valuable services to very ill children and their families.’
