We would like to say a huge thank you to the Empanda staff team who voted to support East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) with money saved by sending an e-Christmas card instead of buying and posting traditional paper cards. Staff were given the opportunity to choose a charity close to their own hearts, and out of the 16 charities nominated, EACH was the firm favourite. We were delighted to be able to send a £200 donation which has meant so much to the charity. We have since heard how our gift will help to support children, young people and their families living with life-threatening conditions.
In a letter from Billie Race, Corporate Fundraiser, she said, ‘Thank you so much for your generous donation in support of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and for thinking of us, particularly at this time of year. Your kind donation is very much appreciated and will help us continue to care for and support children, young people and their families living with life-threatening conditions. After a very difficult year, we’ve never needed more support, so this is much appreciated’
