The nook appeal has received a £7,000 boost thanks to former BBC Beijing bureau chief and novelist Humphrey Hawksley.
Mr Hawksley gave a captivating presentation about his new book, Asian Waters, widely praised as the first to break down the politics and tensions of the Indo-Pacific, at a sold-out Wells Maltings in Wells.
Proceedings were rounded off with words from former MI6 chief Sir John Scarlett KCMG OBE.
Mr Hawksley said: “I feel so privileged to have been a part of raising such an amazing amount for the nook appeal.
“The generosity in helping vulnerable, sick children is fantastic and a mark of our values.
“I so much look forward to visiting the new site when it’s finished.”
The nook appeal aims to raise £10m to build a new children’s hospice in Framingham Earl, five miles south of Norwich.
