Touring the site to see how construction is progressing since the build was started in November last year the group met with Graham Butland EACH's chief executive and John Pickering, the chair of trustees.
Mr Bacon said: 'I am delighted to visit the Nook and see the progress that has been made to provide a much needed palliative care hospice with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for the children and young people of Norfolk.
Mr Freeman added: EACH is a brilliant charity that has been doing fantastic work for our most vulnerable children for over two decades.'
