East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH)
Whilst Tim will trek to Everest for the Arthur Rank charity, Keith will do so for the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. If you can find a way to support EACH, we would be very grateful.
EACH provides care and support to life-threatened children and their families across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.
EACH delivers a range of services which includes: short break care, specialist play activities, music therapy, hydrotherapy, parent groups, sibling groups, care at end of life and bereavement support for all family members.
EACH provides care and support wherever the family wishes – in their own home, in hospital or at one of our hospices in Ipswich, Milton or Quidenham.
The children and young people EACH care for may have been born with a genetic disorder, have a problem with the development of one or more of their body’s systems, had an accident at birth or later in life, have organ failure or suffer from cancer. We care for those aged from birth up until their 19th birthday. We care for family members too.
EACH needs to raise £4.8 million in donations to deliver their services this year. This amounts to £13,000 a day, every day of the year.
The majority of EACH’s costs are not for specialist equipment but for delivering the specialist one-to-one nursing and supportive care so vital to the children, young people and their families.
EACH continues to develop the quality and range of their services to support children and their families. The number of families we help has increased by 48% in the past two years, and last year we helped 547 families.
