A few words from our friends…


“Always look on the bright side of life…”

“I first met Jeff, The Community Fundraiser for ECH in March of 2014. I realised when I spoke with him, and then later when I met with Nadia in the ECH Office that I could help to fundraise for them. I have travelled many times to America visiting my friends and knew that my next visit would probably be my last.

I decided to make it a sponsored visit by asking my good friends and the people of Gt. Yarmouth and Gorleston to sponsor me for a pound each as I travelled 10,000 miles around America by train. It is a mark of the generosity of our community that they have given over £4000. I am very grateful to them all.I am struck by the fact that we have no Adult hospice facilities in our area. I find this shocking. I am very lucky to have enjoyed, and still do, good health but many people, and they are not necessarily old by any stretch of the imagination, find themselves unsupported when faced with a terminal diagnosis. End of life care in this area can only be called fragmented to say the least and I am being kind saying that.

We desperately need this Hospice, Margaret Chadd house to be built.”
