Norwich Photography firm focus on supporting EACH appeal
A Norfolk based photography company will be focusing their attention on a new aim this year as they pledge their support for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) nook appeal.
Camera specialists Wex Photographic, who run an online shop and have a showroom on Drayton High Road, Norwich, are the latest local company to sign up to the nook business network scheme, and have pledged to raise at least £10,000 over the term of the appeal.
EACH launched the nook appeal in November 2014. The appeal aims to raise £10 million to transform children’s palliative care across the county, which includes a new purpose-built hospice ‘the nook’ on a 5-acre woodland site in Framingham Earl just south of Norwich.
The nook business network asks for companies small, medium and large throughout Norfolk to commit to raising either £10,000, £15,000 or £25,000 over the duration of the appeal in return for a number of benefits and support that the charity will provide. More than 25 local companies have now pledged their support for the scheme.
WEX Photographic are already supporters of EACH and donated a camera with accessories worth over £450.00 to the charity’s current hospice in Quidenham in December 2015.
Louis Wahl, Chief Customer Officer at from Wex, says: ‘“As a Norfolk-based business, we understand why the work done through East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices is so important for affected families, and for the whole community. We are proud to support EACH and the Nook Appeal’.”
James Bacon, EACH Norfolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “We’re delighted that WEX photographic have pledged their support for our business network and are committed to helping make our vision of a new hospice for local life-threatened children and their families a reality.
“We need the support of all sectors of the Norfolk community – individuals, schools, community groups and of course the business sector to achieve our fundraising target , so support from WEX is fantastic and we very much look forward to working with them.”
