A retail institution in Norwich has become the latest company to sign up to a charity business network.

Jarrold is the 39th member of the nook business network, which exists to support East Anglia's Children's Hospices' (EACH) nook appeal.

The department store has pledged to raise £10,000 for the appeal, which aims to raise £10m to build a new hospice in Framingham Earl.

Foundations for the hospice were dug in November after the appeal hit £7m.

Jarrold plans to donate proceeds from its carrier bag sales and host a fashion show among other fundraising activities.
