A special delivery has brought Christmas joy to hospice families
A special delivery has brought Christmas joy to families receiving care and support from East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
Every year EACH hosts a Christmas party for children, young people and their families and thanks to Loads4Less, the Norwich-based removals and storage firm, party equipment and presents were delivered from Quidenham hospice to the party venue at the Norfolk Showground ensuring everyone had a great time.
Staff from Loads4Less gave up their time voluntarily to deliver presents to the party free of charge as well as delivering and returning equipment; saving the charity valuable funds, resources and staff time.
Megan Seaman, EACH Facilities Coordinator at Quidenham hospice, said: “We’re absolutely delighted with the generous support from Loads4Less which saved us a great deal of time and money and ensured the party ran smoothly. All of the families had a great time and it was lovely to see so many smiles when Father Christmas came to visit to hand out the presents. Volunteers are vital to EACH as Loads4Less have proved.”
Loads4Less Director Adam Soall said: “As a business, we feel it’s important to support our local community, and we can’t think of a more worthy charity to support than EACH because of the amazing work they do.
“It was a delight to offer our services free of charge to ensure the party was a great success, and to ensure EACH staff didn’t have to spend their valuable time doing deliveries. We’re looking forward to continuing supporting EACH and all the future opportunities the relationship will bring. It’s rewarding to support a local charity and we’d encourage other businesses and individuals to get involved.”
