A variety of East Anglian stores are encouraging customers to donate unwanted items to raise funds for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

Mattressman, QD, Cherry Lane, Thing-me-bobs and Lathams stores will have EACH's Bag it, Bring it, Boost it bags available for shoppers to take away until the end of March.

Once a bag has been filled with any unwanted clothes, toys, books or bric-a-brac, they can be returned to any participating store to be sent on to EACH for sale in their charity shops.

EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia and supports their families.

It needs to raise £10m to build a new purpose-built hospice in Framingham Earl, just outside Norwich, which will replace its Quidenham base.
