Orchard Toys smashes its £10,000 fundraising target for EACH

Orchard Toys has smashed its £10,000 fundraising target for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) – and presented a cheque for £11,125.

It follows in-house fundraising among staff, who have held cake sales and charity football matches, alongside customer and JustGiving donations.

In particular, customers have been encouraged to donate if they take advantage of Orchard Toys’ misplaced pieces service, whereby if anyone loses a playing piece from their favourite game they can request free replacement pieces.

Orchard Toys has been raising funds for EACH since 2011, and plans to continue pledging donations to the children’s hospice charity.

“There’s a real ‘synergy’ between the two companies, and we’re proud to have a long-standing relationship with EACH – a local charity doing great hospice work here in the heart of our community,” commented Simon Newbery, md of Orchard Toys.

Laura Southcott, corporate fundraising assistant at EACH, added: “We’re extremely grateful to everyone at Orchard Toys and their wonderful customers. It’s great to have their continued support. It’s a phenomenal amount of money and will make a real difference.”

EACH supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. It has three hospices, including The Nook, at Framingham Earl in Norfolk.
