EACH CharityWe’ve been working hard to make sure everyone who uses MailBigFile is fully aware of the upcoming charity event on the 27th April.

For those of you who are currently unaware (where have you been?):

On the 27th April (tomorrow at the time of writing), MailBigFile will be holding a charity event whereby all proceeds on new accounts gathered on the day will go straight back to the EACH charity. This includes all services that we at MailBigFile offer including the Pro 24 Hour, Pro and any of the Business packages.

Not sure who EACH are? Perhaps heard of the name but unfamiliar with their work? Want to know what you’re donating to? Read on:

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. We provide care and support wherever the family wishes – in families’ own homes, in the community or at one of our hospices in Ipswich, Milton and Quidenham.

Our care teams help children and their families with the emotional and physical challenges they face, helping them to make the most of life. We deliver a range of services that includes: short break care, specialist play activities, music therapy, hydrotherapy, parent groups and sibling groups, care at end of life and bereavement support for all family members. Families can choose which parts of the service they use.

We continue to develop the quality and range of our services to support children and their families. The number of families we help has increased by 48% in the past two years – last year EACH helped as many as 547 families.

We are a registered charity and this year need to raise around £4.8 million from public donations to deliver our services. This amounts to more than 13,000 a day, every day of the year.

You don’t have to donate much, anything you donate will help the families and children that EACH provide support for. If you don’t want to donate the sums given for the accounts shown (or simply already have an account and don’t want to have another), you can send us a manual donation for the sum of your choice.
