A Norfolk-based house builder has smashed its own fundraising target and handed over a cheque for £30,000 to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

In 2015 Abel Homes pledged to raise £25,000 within three years for The Nook Appeal, and a combination of staff fundraising and donations has pushed the total raised beyond that target.

Abel Homes chairman Tony Abel said: “I am so proud of our team who have worked hard to raise an amazing amount of money, which the company has match-funded, for such a worthy cause. I would also like to thank all our clients, suppliers, partners and supporters who have helped us reach this milestone.”

Nook Appeal corporate fundraiser Sophie Mayes said: “We are so excited to celebrate Abel Home’s £30,000 fundraising milestone for EACH.”

The Nook Appeal is aiming to raise £10m to develop a hospice at Framingham Earl, near Norwich.
