East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is reflecting on a busy 2021 and feeling ever thankful for its incredible community of supporters after the recent success of its Christmas campaign, Gift of Life. Launched in mid-November, the Gift of Life campaign asked EAAA supporters to donate to the 24/7 air ambulance charity this Christmas, to help the crews continue to be there for people in their darkest hour over the festive period. The campaign also encouraged supporters to send a message of support for the crews which could be hung on a Christmas tree in each of the EAAA operational bases, one in Norwich and one in Cambridge, to help give all of the EAAA staff a morale boost. The charity is overwhelmed to have received more than £80,000 in donations…

There was magic in the air when a dashing dragon stomped its way into the grounds of a children’s hospice. The mythical model has been donated by Norfolk’s ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure and will spend the next 12 months at The Nook – East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ (EACH) base in Framingham Earl, near Norwich. Among those to drop him off were Dippy, the attraction’s dinosaur mascot, who met children including Bradley Jackson (pictured). Adam Goymour, Park Director at ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure, said: “With Christmas just round the corner, we wanted to spread a little festive cheer to those who need it most and we hope the children and families at The Nook enjoy the beautifully-painted dragon. Dippy and our staff enjoyed making the special delivery and it’s lovely to support and…

Kind-hearted police officers and staff clubbed together to provide a sweet treat for youngsters receiving care from a children’s hospice. Staff from Norfolk and Suffolk Constabulary handed over more than 350 gingerbread houses during a special presentation at The Nook – the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) base in Framingham Earl, just outside Norwich. They will be distributed to families being supported by the charity, which cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions. Sergeant Donna Flannagan helped oversee the collection, which was organised by nine members of Norfolk and Suffolk Constabulary’s Information Management United, based in Wymondham. They set themselves a modest target but, thanks to the support of family and friends, managed to buy 366 boxes. People either donated the gingerbread or made a cash donation which…

Fancy hitting the road and helping support a leading children’s charity? East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is on the lookout for volunteers to get involved with its daily van runs. This could involve being a driver or going along to help and support one of the existing drivers, based at the charity’s Retail Distribution Centre (RDC) in Thetford. Supply Chain Manager Roger Leggett said: “Our resources are fully stretched and any extra help would make a massive difference. We have four vans and three of them take stock to the various EACH shops, which are dotted throughout East Anglia. The fourth is used more for furniture runs – both collecting and dropping off – mainly in and around Norwich. It might be that someone can drive one of the vans…

Kind-hearted Shanice Green admitted being overwhelmed and crying tears of joy after quadrupling her fundraising target for 2021. The 25-year-old, whose brother, Leo, died in 2010, is a long-time supporter of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and set herself a modest goal of £500. Instead, after arranging a series of events throughout the year, including a successful fancy dress party, she ended up raising more than £2,000. Her phenomenal efforts will help the charity continue supporting families and caring for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. Shanice said: “I’m very proud, happy and grateful for the support I’ve received. To have raised so much is overwhelming. It’s lovely and something I didn’t expect. I cried tears of joy when we hit £2,000. I…
