Farm shop’s big cheque for EACH
A south Norfolk farm shop has raised hundreds of pounds for East Anglia's Children's Hospices.
Goodies Farm Shop at Pulham Market, run by Stuart and Kim Gooderham, generated �800 in three weeks for EACH, which has a hospice at Quidenham.
The shop staged a 'pick a square' game which saw people pay �1 for a numbered square, which was randomly drawn in a raffle. The lucky winners scooped a luxury Christmas hamper worth �200, and a large teddy bear.
Mr Gooderham said they would be raising more for the hospice after making EACH the farm shop's charity for 2011.
'The Quidenham Children's Hospice is a charity very close to my heart. Supporting the EACH Quidenham Hospice means we are supporting our local community,' he said.
Goodies will be raising money for EACH during Farmhouse Breakfast Week from January 23-29 where �1 for every breakfast sold will go to the charity. EACH needs to raise �4m a year in donations and fundraising activities.
Claire LeLievre, EACH community fundraising co-ordinator for South Norfolk, said: 'We can't thank Stuart and Kim enough for their support.'
