IMAGINE receiving an hour of respite for a life-limited child as a Gift of Care this Christmas.

With seasonal festivities creeping ever closer, some of you may be thinking: "I want a local charity to benefit from my Christmas lights display" or "I'd prefer my friends to make a donation to charity instead of buying me a Christmas card or a gift I don't really need". East Anglia's Children's Hospices can help with both these questions.

Christmas lights: we invite anyone planning to erect festive lights this year to consider making a collection in aid of their local children's hospice. We supply eye-catching 'weatherproof' posters (including a letter of authority) for displaying in either a window or outside in the garden. We would also be delighted to provide stocks of literature and a collecting box.

A "Christmas Gift of Care": Imagine receiving an hour of respite care for a life-limited child as a Gift of Care this Christmas. EACH can provide you with full colour leaflets and personalised forms for sending to friends and colleagues asking for small donations in place of an expensive card or gift. They will in turn receive a special card thanking them for their generosity.

Contact EACH on 01953 715559 or: funding@each.org.uk to request your pack.

The three children's hospices run by EACH - at Ipswich, Quidenham in Norfolk and Milton near Cambridge - give much needed care and support to life-limited children and their families. Such care doesn't come cheap - during 2006/067 it will cost around £4million, and historically only 10 per cent of this has been funded by the Government.
