Birthday's, anniversaries, Mother's Day or Easter? Buy a present that really counts - a Gift of Care for East Anglia's Children's Hospices.
As an alternative to traditional presents, help us to make a difference to the lives of the children and families the hospice looks after by buying (or requesting) a Gift of Care.
For example, for £15 you can pay for a play therapy session, or contribute to a music therapy or respite care session at Milton Children's Hospice. You can donate the gift to a family or friend, and EACH will send the recipient a greetings card to let them know what you have bought.
Jill Brown and Guy Wiltshear are getting married later this year. Having already set up home together, they felt traditional wedding gifts wouldn't be necessary and decided to put Gifts of Care on their wedding list instead.
Ross Harper recently celebrated his 35th birthday in style by inviting 150 of his friends and family to a birthday party, but instead of traditional gifts, he asked his guests to bring along a donation to his local children's hospice. EACH supplied their new Gift of Care leaflets and order forms, and even some balloons to help his party go with a swing.
INFO: We have Gift of Care leaflets in our reception at 38 Market Street, Ely or you can obtain them direct from the Milton Hospice by phoning them on 01953 715559 or at the website: www.each.org.uk.
