Howes Percival Raises £5000 for TimeNorfolk

We have had a fantastic time being charity of the year for the Howes Percival Norwich branch. It has been an incredibly positive time and we have been blown away by the generosity and commitment of Howes Percival staff!

From pancake flipping, to jumping out of a plane there have been many individuals who have gone over and above to raise funds for TimeNorfolk.

Thank you to everybody at Howes Percival who has organised, baked or donated in aid of TimeNorfolk.

Money raised will go towards supporting those who have suffered pregnancy loss and will make a real difference in peoples lives.

Huge thanks to Abbie for sharing her experience & helping us to raise funds towards a maternity bereavement suite at NNUH

We are looking for people who can help us fundraise towards a maternity bereavement suite at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

We are working with Kari the bereavement midwife from NNUH to get a maternity bereavement suite up and running for all those bereaved parents who lose a baby.

We would love to see a space where families are able to grieve and create memories with their baby in a peaceful and warm environment and away from other babies.

If you would like to help make this happen please do consider making a donation or holding an event to raise funds.

Bake sales, runs, swims, auctions, raffles, open mic nights and quiz nights are all great ways to raise funds & if you would like to set something up we would love to hear from you and support you!

Just email info@timenorfolk.org.uk or visit the page below to donate online.

It was on my due date that I felt reduced movements from my baby. I went to the hospital where I was given a scan and given the news no parent wants to hear, ‘my baby had died’. When I delivered Luna-Mai my daughter, I was in the room at the end of delivery suite which was the bereavement room that they had then, it was very clinical. It was so difficult having to walk past all the normal delivery rooms to one at the end of the corridor knowing there were woman in labour with their babies.

It was extremely difficult for my family who were coming to visit me, Ryan and Luna-Mai as they were having to walk past happy families leaving with their babies. If there was a bereavement suite away from the normal delivery area it would give the family that extra peace needed at such a terrible time.

Vote for us in the Aviva Community Fund – Help us fund a New Centre in Great Yarmouth

We need your help

Vote for Us

Vote for TimeNorfolk and help us secure funding to open our new centre in Great Yarmouth

Aviva Community Fund Voting Opens Today

The Aviva Community Fund offers charities the chance to receive funding for important causes within the community.

We have applied to receive funding to help us set up our new centre in Great Yarmouth.

We have been running a very limited, almost ad hoc service in Gt Yarmouth for many years, but this simply isn’t enough to meet the demand. We know there is such a need to have a permanent facility there and we desperately want to open a new centre in Gt Yarmouth. Getting to Norwich is just not an option due to geographical and public transport constraints, for so many people who are in crisis and need the right sort of help to heal from such a traumatic experience of losing their baby.

It is so distressing knowing that we could help but just cannot reach everybody currently. Bereavement of a baby is like no other bereavement as “you don’t have the memories that others have when you lose a baby”.

This funding will enable us to launch a pilot centre in Great Yarmouth where we would be able to support a larger number of clients who are currently unable to reach us.

Who can vote?

Anyone who lives in the UK and registers on the Aviva Community Fund website can vote for projects between 23rd October and 20th November.

How do I vote?

You have to register first & then you’ll get 10 votes which you can use at any time during the voting phase of the competition. You can support as many projects as you like with your votes. Spread them around or use them all to support one project , it’s up to you.
