EACH Chief Executive Graham Butland said: "The Nook appeal will transform children's palliative care across Norfolk and we are moving ever closer to the halfway mark of £5 million.
"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."
Since becoming Royal Patron of EACH in 2012, Kate has played a vital role in raising awareness and understanding of children's hospice services across East Anglia and the rest of the UK.
