A children's charity has received a boost after a partnership with a Norfolk-based toy manufacturer.

Orchard Toys, in Wymondham, has announced an on-going linkup with East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

The partnership will see the charity, which has a hospice at Quidenham, being featured in the toy company's product leaflets and sales brochures, which are distributed across the globe, and will encourage donations to EACH on toy order forms.

Simon Newbery, managing director of Orchard Toys, said: 'It is only fitting that a company who design and manufacture children's educational games and jigsaws should seek to help a children's charity.'
