A local charity are asking people to put themselves in the frame to help the regions sick children.

East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) are re-running their popular recruitment drive Be a name in our Frame, to try and find new volunteers to run their charity shops across East Anglia.

The children's charity raises around £900,000 per year from it's 32 stores but relies heavily on volunteers to run them.

The money raised goes towards supporting children with life-threatening conditions and their families.

Last year the scheme encouraged 97 people to sign up and volunteer at an EACH shop.

Laura Mackay, EACH Shop Manager in Fakenham, said: 'We can always use more help to keep our shops running. The charity has to generate 84% of the money it needs to operate.'
