Over 1000 people join Easter Egg Hunt to support Norfolk’s bereaved children

In this section

On Sunday 14 April, Nelson's Journey hosted a huge Easter Egg Hunt to raise money for bereaved children and young people in Norfolk.

Supported by the East of England Co-op Funeral Services for the past four years, this year's hunt took place in the private grounds of Barningham Hall. 

Over £3,500 was raised from the event which will go towards supporting more children and young people in Norfolk, struggling after the loss of an important person in their lives. 

Louise Flynn, Event Organiser for Nelson's Journey, said: "This event is very special to the children and young people we support at Nelson's Journey. It is one of our 'Positive Activities' for families who have experienced a bereavement to come together and remember the special person in their lives that has died. Families also get the opportunity to enjoy lots of fun activities too, making new special memories and helping them to move forward positively with their lives. 

"It was amazing to see over 1,000 people coming along to this year's event for a fun day out; the event has grown in size each year and is now a firm date in our events calendar. We are incredibly greatful to Thomas and Amelia Courtauld for allowing us to use their beautiful grounds at Barningham Hall, and East of England Co-op who have sponsored the event for the fourth year in a row."
