Lynn News Help Our Hospice Appeal nears its target figure

Have your say

With the Lynn News Help Our Hospice now standing at £18,683, thanks to generous readers, we are getting closer to our £25,000 target.

So with the start of a new year, can you help us to fulfil our resolution to reach our target figure by raising the remainder needed to reach our goal?

If you are a business, individual, or organisation who wants to put fun into fundraising by staging an event, or if you would like to make a donation to this worthwhile cause, we would love to hear from you.

Any fundraising events will get all the publicity you need in the Lynn News and we’ll have a photographer on hand to cover your event and let the North West Norfolk and Fens community know how you are helping this good cause.

Sponsored events could be anything from a walk to a skydive, or you could get friends together for a bingo, quiz or perhaps hold a coffee morning. The possibilities are endless and you will get full support from the fundraising office at Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House at Hillington.

We’re nearly there, but there’s still just over £6,300 needed to achieve our target, and we are hoping we can count on you, our readers, to raise this remaining figure.

All the money will be used to provide the best possible facilities for patients and visitors in one of the new in-patient rooms at the hospice, including a specialist bed, hoist system, mattresses, en-suite facility, nurse call system, syringe driver, piped oxygen system, bedding, TV and technology, including Wi-Fi, furniture and soft furnishings.

Each room will have a patio overlooking surrounding countryside and a power supply will be installed here for the bed and oxygen.

If you can help, then please get in touch with Julie Graham at the Lynn News on 01553 817305, or email her:; or call community fundraiser Lindsey Atkin, saying your event is in aid of the Lynn News Help Our Hospice Appeal, on 01485 601701 or email her:
