Tia's Treasures New Year Update

Since 2018 when Toby the youngest member of the Team was diagnosed with Epilepsy after 5 Tonic Clonic Seizures resulting in 999 calls and trips to A&E followed by Children's Ward at The James Paget University Hospital we have focused on raising awareness for Epilepsy as well as raising funds for Young Epilepsy and Seizure Alarms, we funded Seizure Alarm number 14 in November which was great timing as November is Epilepsy Awareness month.

Toby is now just over 2 and his Tonic Clonic Seizures are quite controlled but he still has Focal Seizures and Clonic Seizures a lot of which are at night so we realise the importance of Seizure Alarms for peace of mind.

Toby has also been diagnosed with Speech Delay, Allergies, Restless Legs Syndrome and has had numerous Doctors Appointments and a couple of hospital stays due to reoccurring Chest Infections resulting in Steroids and Antibiotics, he has now been given 2 Inhalers and will be regularly seeing the Asthma Nurse to help him become controlled.

We were unable to hold any fundraising events on a large scale last year but Just Fundraise East Anglia are organising a Summer Extravaganza in aid of Tia's Treasures in June and hopefully will be able to plan something ourselves to raise funds and awareness of Epilepsy when Tia's Treasures turns 10 in 2021.

We have continued with our Random Acts of Kindness which feature a Tia's Treasures handmade charm which are either hidden for people to find or given out to those we feel could do with having a smile put on their face, people can also request them by visiting the RAKtivists link on the Tia's Treasures website, we did a selection for Staff Members of James Paget University Hospital as well as the Paramedics based at the Waveney Ambulance Depot in Gorleston a long with goody bags of biscuits and chocolates to help boost morale and show our appreciation for the true heroes that they are, Toby enjoyed giving them out especially to the Paramedics as he has quite an obsession with Paramedics and Ambulances aka "Nor Nors"

Alex (16), Tia (14), Adam (11) and Jamie (9) have been busy creating Kindness Cards featuring Kind words and positive quotes, Tommy (3) and Toby (2) have also been getting involved by creating Kindness Cards featuring their brightly coloured Art work.
These cards are being included with the Random Acts of Kindness or again these can be requested by visiting visiting the Raktivists link on the Tia's Treasures website.

    The Tia's Treasures Team are well known not only for fundraising but for participating in Random Acts of Kindness.

    With the imminent return to College, School and Toby due to start Nursery the past couple of weeks has been spent making sure all uniforms are ready for the return after almost 6 months due to the Corona Virus.

    Whilst unable to attend or organise any fundraising events other than Lisa braving the shave for Young Epilepsy Random Acts of Kindness have still been something we've continued with as we believe they are needed more than ever right now.

  • Fundraising News from Tia's Treasures

    Tia's Treasures Young Epilepsy JustGiving Page is currently at 80% of our £1000 target.

    We had planned to hold a Fundraising event of some kind to celebrate Tia's Treasures 9th Birthday on 21st May to hopefully reach our target but due to the current situation with Covid 19/Corona Virus this unfortunately wasn't possible.

    We have been thinking of ways how we could raise the last £200 to achieve our £1000 target from the comfort of our home and I have decided to brave the shave, I've dyed my hair purple many times since 2018 for Epilepsy Awareness so why not go that step further to raise funds?

    A group has been set up on Facebook by a lady called Tracy from Leicester and within 3 days reached over 10k members, as a Raktivist through the work we do with Tia's Treasures I've been invited to become an Admin on the Hit the Ambulance Gamers Facebook Group.  The facebook group is https://www.facebook.com/groups/500377094231257/
