Designer mugs and matching shopping bags sold in Waitrose stores across the UK have raised more than £100,000 for the East Anglia's Children's Hospices' (Each) Nook appeal.

The results of the partnership between the supermarket and pottery designer and manufacturer Emma Bridgewater were launched in November 2014, and encouraged by the charity's royal patron, the Duchess of Cambridge.

The £102,777 raised will go towards transforming children's palliative care across Norfolk.

Ms Bridgewater said: 'I am delighted and not a little astonished at the huge success of the pattern that we developed with Each to raise money for their nook appeal.

'But I should not be surprised; Each after all is a brilliant organisation, one that has really made a difference to the unbelievably difficult lives of unwell children and their families in East Anglia.'

Each provides care and support to life-threatened children, and is raising funds to move from its current home in Quidenham to a purpose-built site in Framingham Earl.
