East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices
We are thrilled to announce that this year’s chosen charity is East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice, EACH.
This year’s charity was selected through a process engaging all of our team members at the Hotel & Spa. Firstly, a shortlist of charities was compiled through staff nominations, and then each member of staff was given the opportunity to vote for their preferred charity to determine the chosen charity for the year. This year, whilst voting was close, EACH was the lucky winner.
Over the course of the next 12 months, staff members plan to organise and take part in a variety of activities and events to raise awareness and funds for this wonderful charity.
EACH support families and care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. They offer families flexibility and control over where they receive care and support, whether it be at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices in Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich). They deliver a wide range of services including end of life care, day care and overnight breaks, emotional and wellbeing support, various therapies, family support group.
Noel Byrne, Chief Executive at Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa, commented: “We’ve previously had a lot of fun raising money for charities that we have worked with – from bake sales to charity skydives – it is great to see the money go to such worthy causes and truly make a difference. We are always keen on choosing a charity that is reasonably local to the Hotel, ensuring that the funds we raise are benefitting our local community. Asking the team to vote for their chosen charity provides us with a great drive for our fundraising activities as it allows us to support an issue that everyone is passionate about. We are all looking forward to seeing what 2022 -2023 brings in terms of exciting and original fundraising activities for our staff to take on!”
