HRH the Duchess of Cambridge to visit Emma Bridgewater Factory

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, who is Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), will be visiting the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke-on-Trent later this month to learn more about a special pottery project which will raise vital awareness and funds for the EACH nook appeal.
Emma teamed up with EACH last year to create two exclusive mugs to raise funds for the nook appeal which needs to raise £10 million to build and equip a new children’s hospice for Norfolk. Emma and Matthew used to live in Norfolk and are delighted to be able to support a Norfolk charity.
The partnership was encouraged by The Duchess of Cambridge, and two exclusive ½ Pint Mugs ‘Insects & Flowers’ and ‘Ladybirds’ as well as a ‘Ladybirds Baby Mug’ have been designed.
The visit to the factory on 18th February is an opportunity to see the design and manufacture of the mug and meet the staff producing it.
For every mug sold £5 is going straight to EACH. The mugs will be available to pre-order from emmabridgewater.co.uk from 18 February 2015 and will be available from Emma Bridgewater shops and website from Monday 2nd March. The prices are as follows: Ladybirds ½ Pint Mug £19.95 with a £5 donation, Ladybirds and Insects & Flowers boxed pair £39.95 with a £10 donation, Ladybirds Baby Mug £15.95 with a £5 donation.
