Jarrold becomes newest member of the nook business network

Jarrold is the 39th member of an ever-growing corporate group that exists to support East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), specifically the charity’s Nook appeal and has pledged to raise £10,000 for the appeal, which was launched in November 2014 to raise £10 million for a new, purpose-built children’s hospice in Framingham Earl near Norwich.

Jarrold has chosen the good cause as one of three to receive its backing until 2020, with the other lucky beneficiaries being Big C and the Prince’s Trust. The store plans to award money from its carrier bag sales and host a fashion show among its fundraising activities.

Carole Slaughter, Jarrold Charity Co-ordinator, said: “Jarrold has been a supporter of EACH for many years and is delighted to now become a member of the Nook business network with a pledge to raise £10,000 towards the new purpose built children’s hospice in Norfolk. 

The monies will be raised by Jarrold staff and customers through a variety of activities over the coming months as part of the Jarrold 250 Fundraising Initiative.”

Sophie Mayes, EACH Norfolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “We are really excited to be working with such a popular store as Jarrold and can’t wait to see what staff get up to in order to fulfill their pledge.

“Foundations for our new hospice were dug out in November after the Nook appeal hit £7 million, so we’re edging ever closer to making our vision for improved children’s palliative care in Norfolk a reality. We will need continued support to raise the final £3 million though, so it’s fantastic news that Jarrold is joining our business network.”

The Nook business network sees companies committing to raise either £10,000, £15,000 or £25,000 in exchange for various benefits and support.
