We at Fox Narrowboats are pleased to announce that the charity we have chosen to support in 2015 is EACH – East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. The charity provides services for children with life-threatening conditions, and also supports their families. They provide a range of services at their three hospices and also in the homes of the families they support.
To run the hospices, they rely on fundraising and donations, as it costs £6 million a year to deliver their services. All of their services are offered to those in need for free. They currently care for 333 children and young people and 547 families. They also provide one to one support to 59 siblings.
Our first event to raise funds for the charity will be Boat Trips at the March for St George’s Fayre on the 26th of April. We will post details of the trips nearer to the event and we will also post details of our other fundraising endeavours. If you would like to raise money for EACH, you can shop in one of their many shops across East Anglia, you can donate on their website or you can become a fundraiser like we have. It is a wonderful charity providing a much needed service to the East Anglian community.
