The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House has recently launched a brand new website. The new website, which officially went live on 8th February, was made possible by the Transform Foundation who funded the design, development and build of the new site. Designed by Raising IT, a specialist in charity websites, the new site features enhanced functionality as well as a new modern easy to use design.

Some of the new functions on the website include the ability for supporters to set up their own fundraising pages and Tribute Funds. Event and news pages in the new format allow supporters to keep up to date with what is happening at the charity.

Earlier this year Mr Ian Devereux and his family sponsored the development of the new community pack (featured above), which has lots of useful information, inspiration and advice on how to plan your own event or sponsored challenge in aid of The Norfolk Hospice. The new website allows users to download a copy or fill in a form to request a pack to be posted to them.

Lyndsay Carter, Chief Executive of The Norfolk Hospice, said:

Our old website was built in 2011, since then website technology has come a long way, particularly for charities. The new website is fantastic; it has brought us up to date with technology and has been designed to be easy to read and navigate, meaning that the community can find the information they need quickly.

Lindsey Atkin, Community Fundraising Manager, said:

Our new community pack is a fantastic resource for anyone thinking about fundraising for the Hospice and covers all the essentials from how to keep your event safe and legal, inspirational stories from past fundraisers, how to boost donations online and details of other Hospice equipment and resources supporters can borrow to help make their event or challenge a big success. It doesn’t matter whether you’re able to raise £50 or £500, we appreciate every £1 and our Fundraising Team are always happy to provide any advice and guidance you might need along the way.
