Our chosen charity for 2020 is:

EACH The Nook

East Anglia's Children's Hospices

Help us build a wonderful new playground at the Nook!

This year, all funds raised from Norfolk Superhero 2020 will go to the funding of specialist equipment for a playground at the newly built nook - a purpose built children's hospice for life-threatened children living in Norfolk.

 

Play is for everyone, for every single child no matter how complex their care needs. It’s an essential part of growing up – because it’s fun!

 

Play helps to develop young lives and to forge their physical, social and emotional wellbeing. It’s also a crucial way for young minds to process incredibly difficult situations, situations both the children we care for and their siblings need so much help with. The opportunity to slip down a slide, have a swing with their friends, and explore, discover and feel the total freedom and pleasure of the great outdoors. Some children can communicate verbally, others use play to help us understand them. It allows parents to interact and engage fully with their children and to create memories that last forever.

 

We are determined to ensure every single child at The Nook can enjoy that amazing outdoor experience – the best, most exciting space we can offer, one that’s completely accessible for every young person no matter the challenges they face.
