Treehouse Appeal breaks �300,000
EXCITED fundraisers are today celebrating after the appeal for a new children’s hospice in Suffolk broke through the �300,000 mark.
Thanks to generous donations flooding in, the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) Treehouse Appeal to build a new centre in Ipswich is now well underway.
The project, launched early last month, aims to raise �3 million to build and equip a new hospice to provide care and support for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
The total now stands at �302, 987, bringing dreams of opening the brand new six-bedroom hospice off Bixley Road one step closer to reality.
The Treehouse Appeal is the chosen charity of George Paul, this year’s President of the Suffolk Agricultural Association, and the charity will have presence at the Suffolk Show early next month.
