Help celebrate 7 years of Tia's Treasures

Tia’s Treasures began in 2011 when Tia was just 6 years old. Tia started out by creating beaded bracelets for family and friends until she soon realised that she could turn what had started out as a hobby into a fundraising enterprise calling herself  Tia’s Treasures. Tia decided she would not only create bracelets but necklaces, key rings, bag charms, mobile phone charms, earrings, rings, brooches, bookmarks and magnets.

Tia began donating the proceeds from the sales of her “treasures” to CLIC Sargent and CHECT (Childhood Eye Cancer Trust) as these charities had supported her Best Friend Demi who had been battling Retinoblastoma since the age of 6 months, by the age of 8 Demi had unfortunately lost her sight in both eyes.

Over £5,000 has been raised in total for various charities, deserving causes and individuals from fundraisers they have organised and attended as well as the sales from the handmade jewellery and Tia has received a number of awards including Take a Break and 4Children Family Heroes Award for the East of England and The Beach Radio Gold Award. 

The Tia's Treasures Team has grown with the arrival of Tommy in January 2016 and Toby in 2017 but unfortunately after 2 traumatic births resulted in a longer than anticipated recovery and therefore their annual fundraiser to celebrate the anniversary of Tia's Treasures didn't take place in 2016 or 2017. However Tia's Treasures were still busy putting smiles on people's faces with their Tia's Treasures Random Acts of Kindness.  Gifts were distributed to those they thought needed a smile put on their faces as well as being hidden in locations local to them for people to find, the favourite being Bluebell Woods. 
 
Tia's Treasures have supplied their local hospital James Paget University Hospital with knitted baby hats and handmade Treasures for them to sell in their League of Friends shop with all proceeds to the hospital. This was their way of giving something back after the care given when Tommy and Toby entered the world. 
 
Tia's Treasures have also started to get involved with Norfolk Rocks which seems to be the new craze at the moment. Painted rocks are hidden all over Norfolk and even further a field for people to find and keep or re-hide, a Facebook group has been set up for members to add photographs of their rocks they've hidden and found. They thought creating some Tia's Treasures themed rocks would be another way of promoting Tia's Treasures as well as being creative and exploring the outdoors.
 
In one month from today on 21st May 2018 Tia's Treasures will be 7 years old. Tia's Treasures have decided to incorporate #NorfolkRocks and #SuffolkRocks into celebrating 7 years of Tia's Treasures as well as raising awareness of what we do and we need YOUR help. 
 
Here is what you can do to help:
 

*Design a rock for Tia's Treasures (it could be Birthday themed or even just featuring the Tia's Treasures colour scheme of pinks and purples if you don't see yourself as very artistic, the choice is yours).

*Use the hashtag #NorfolkRocks or #SuffolkRocks (if you want to take part from another part of the country/world that will be fantastic just replace Norfolk/Suffolk with your location) and also don't forget the hashtag #TiasTreasures.

*Hide your rocks but don't forget to share a photo of them in Event Tia's Treasures Group/Page/Event Page first as we would love to see them.

*Share this post with your Family and Friends or invite them to the Event Page as the more people we get involved the better. The page can be located at https://www.facebook.com/events/929043903942506/?ti=cl

  • Funding opportunity for charities supporting the community during coronavirus

    Charities are being offered an essential lifeline to allow them to carry out essential services during the coronavirus outbreak with grants available of up to £10,000.

    Norfolk Community Foundation is encouraging charities on the frontline who are making a real difference within our communities to get in touch and apply for a grant. 

    While the pandemic is affecting everyone, it’s clearly having a big impact on particular vulnerable groups that may not have their usual level of access to support so grants have never been more important.

  • EAAA listed as 7th in the top 100 not-for-profit companies in the UK to work for

    East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) listed as 7th in the top 100 not-for-profit companies in the UK to work for, as part of the Sunday Times’ Best Companies To Work For listing. They also went from receiving a one star to a three star rating in the year’s listing – which means they have received ‘extraordinary levels of engagement’ from their staff.

    The placing and rating of companies is based solely on staff survey feedback results, and as such is down to employee satisfaction within each organisation.

    EAAA is a helicopter emergency medical service provider covering East Anglia, with offices in Norwich, Ipswich, Cambridge, Melbourn and Peterborough. They provide a 365-day-a-year life-saving service, taking an expert crew consisting of a doctor, a critical care paramedic and two pilots directly to patients who have suffered life-threatening or life-changing accidents or medical emergencies. The clinical crew are supported by charity staff, consisting of a number of teams including; fundraising, operations, communications, HR and executive teams.

  • East Anglian Air Ambulance launch campaign to become a 24/7 service

    East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) has launched an ambitious plan to become a 24/7 helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) provider by 2020. The charity currently operates 365-days-a-year but not 24-hours-a-day, meaning that if an incident happened between midnight and 07:00 there is currently no HEMS provision in the region. The charity is aiming to cover this gap and become a full 24/7 HEMS service by 2020. To do that they need to raise an additional £1 million a year to fund the operation.

    The type of incidents the charity attend – serious road traffic collisions, cardiac arrests, traumatic injuries and other medical emergencies - do not stop when their crew go offline. While a 24/7 service seemed to make sense, the charity needed to be sure, so have been gathering evidence to prove it. They worked with the East of England Ambulance Service Trust (EEAST), who task them, to review incidents over the course of a year where critical care was required but unavailable. They also assessed the need first-hand by trialling an overnight service via rapid response vehicle (RRV) four days a week from the Norwich base. The results of this work confirmed a significant region-wide need for overnight critical care, particularly in rural Norfolk. In the first twelve months of the overnight trial they attended 220 missions, but they say that with the helicopter they could do so much more.

  • Christmas Update from Tia's Treasures

    So far Tia has raised nearly £500 for Young Epilepsy as well as over £200 for The East of England Ambulance Service via the justgiving page and funded 3 Brio Wrist Alarms, 1 Alert It companion Mattress Alarm and 2 SATs Alarms, not just for Toby but for others battling with Epilepsy.

    Toby's original diagnosis back in May was Focal Seizures and Focal Motor Seizures which generalise into Tonic Clonics, since then he has been on daily medication but still has various types of seizures, Myclonus, treated for Asthma and now undergoing investigations for food allergies or intollerances but he remains a happy mischievous toddler.

    As November was National Epilepsy Awareness Month Tia created a flyer with information regarding Epilepsy highlighting the seriousness of it and that there is no cure to be given out and displayed you may have spotted it in local shops.

    Tia has also been decorating and hiding Epilepsy Awareness themed Norfolk Rocks as well as Shells which she has used to raise awareness for SUDEP (Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy) naming them Shells for SUDEP, her brothers have also helped to get involved with the decorating and hiding even Tommy (2) and Toby (1).

  • Help Tia to help Toby

    The youngest member of the Tia's Treasures Team Toby had his first Tonic Clonic Seizure in March and has since had over 30, 5 of which required a 999 call, after various tests Toby was diagnosed with Epilepsy in May, he has Focal Seizures which then generalise into Tonic Clonics, Focal Motor Seizures, Absences and just recently Drop Seizures.

    Tia took it upon herself to set up a Justgiving Crowdfunding page called Help Tia To Help Toby, Tia raised over £1000 so she was able to achieve her goal of purchasing Toby a Seizure Alarm, she then managed to fund another 3 alarms and she has no plans in stopping there, she has now set up a new appeal called Help Tia To Help Others and plans on fundraising for as many Seizure Alarms as she can, these are life saving and life changing.
