Her royal highness was also informed on updates to "the nook appeal," which she helped launch in 2014, and EACH's urgent need to raise funds and make room for the increasing number of children seeking care in their current overgrown site. According to the organization's website, "the appeal aims to raise £10 million for a new purpose-built hospice -- which will be known as the nook -- at a five-acre site in Framingham Earl."

"The Duchess was given a really good insight into the difficulties our staff and volunteers face as a result of Quidenham having outgrown its home, and the huge difference a purpose-built modern hospice will make to the care they can provide to so many families," the website stated. "We still have some way to go before the new hospice can be built, though, and we need continued help from individuals, trusts and events, and as much corporate and community support as possible."
