Christmas in Quidenham is set to sparkle that little bit brighter this year after the Morrisons store in Diss donated presents to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The donation includes a selection of toys with books and puzzles, many of which have a sensory element, which EACH says is “ideal” for the children and young people they care for.
Sharon Eakers, Diss Morrisons Community Champion, visited the charity’s Quidenham hospice this week to drop off the donation. Sharon said: “At Morrisons in Diss we enjoy nurturing close ties with the local community.
“When it came to choosing a local charity this Christmas, EACH was a clear choice. For us, EACH is an important local charity providing invaluable support to families and care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions through its hospices in East Anglia.
“Everyone at Morrsions Diss is delighted to be donating a selection of toys and other gifts to help bring a little sparkle this Christmas to the children, young people and families that EACH so kindly and admirably support.”
Sarah Fisher, EACH Play Specialist at Quidenham, said: “I’d like to thank everyone at Morrisons in Diss for this very generous donation.
