Learning Resources donates toys to children’s hospices

Published on: 28th March 2018

A range of products, including puppets and games, has been donated to three hospices run by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

EACH Quidenham hospice in Norfolk.

Children and young people with life-threatening conditions will be able to enjoy new toys thanks to Learning Resources’ donation. The Norfolk-based educational toy manufacturer gave a range of products, from puppets to problem-solving games, to the three hospices run by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

The toys will be shared between Quidenham hospice in Norfolk, the Treehouse in Ipswich, and Milton hospice in Cambridgeshire. EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia and supports their families.

Rachel Turner, EACH play specialist at Quidenham, commented: “We support the whole family so these toys will be used by the children we care for and their brothers and sisters. Giving every child the opportunity to play regardless of the complexities they face is a really important part of our job. We are so grateful for the support we receive from the community and from businesses.”
