Archant are officially backing the Priscilla Bacon Hospice appeal and have supported us by publishing regular articles and updates in the EDP and Evening News since we launched the campaign in March 2019. Their support has been invaluable in helping us raise awareness of the need for the new hospice, promote initiatives such as Pink Priscilla Day, and celebrate the amazing achievements of people across the county and beyond who have fundraised for us.
Archant have directly fundraised for the appeal, with staff taking part in a charity football day at Carrow Road in 2019 and raising £1,830 in total. Read more here.
We benefitted from the proceeds of Archant’s 2019 Christmas Carol Service held in St Peter Mancroft Church, which totalled £1,551.13.
EDP and Evening News editor, David Powles, is running the London Marathon for us, with over £4,500 raised to date. You can sponsor him here. Archant have also very kindly match-funded David, to the tune of £3,000.
David is one half of ‘Common People Norwich’ and chose us as one of the beneficiaries of funds raised at their 90s music night at Open in Norwich in February 2020. Fundraising continues, with Britpop t-shirts being sold and £2 from each sale being split between our appeal and the NNUH Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
In July 2020, our Head of Fundraising and Communications, Hugo Stevenson, was delighted to be asked to be on the panel of a webinar hosted by Archant, to discuss the way forward for Norfolk’s charities in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
