A bracelet made famous by the Duchess of Cambridge has given East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices a real boost.

The EACH bracelet, designed by Imogen Sheeran, mum of musician Ed, has become so popular since it was worn by the Duchess during her visit to the Treehouse in Suffolk in March, that another 1,000 have been made.

It has helped raise thousands of pounds for EACH and greatly raised the profile of the charity, which has a hospice at Quidenham, near Attleborough. Originally only available online, EACH will now sell the EACH bracelet in their network of 13 shops across East Anglia.

Mrs Sheeran said: “I’m delighted the bracelet has been so successful – I never imagined it would be this popular. I originally made a batch of 25, then 50, and then 100 and it kept growing – soon 1,000 had been sold and I was asked for another 1,000. I’m delighted it’s selling well and raising lots of money for such an important cause.”

The Duchess is the royal patron for EACH. The bracelets cost £10 each and are available online at www.each.org.uk/bracelet or from EACH shops.
