20 years ago, on 6 September 2000, a new charity was formed to help save lives across East Anglia: the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA). Operating initially just one day a week, on a Friday from Norwich Airport, with one paramedic, this was the start of an important lifeline for many local people. Monday, the start of National Air Ambulance Week, EAAA can reveal that over the last 20 years it has flown almost 30,000 missions and helped almost 20,000 patients, all thanks to the generosity of local people. At a time of so much uncertainty, the charity, which needs to raise £13 million a year to develop and deliver its service, and is aiming to start flying 24/7 for the first time next year, is deeply grateful for the…

Together We Run is a new fundraising challenge from East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) which is encouraging local people to pledge their miles towards a collective 2,000 mile target. EAAA normally organises several mass participation challenge events throughout the year, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds to help keep its yellow helicopters flying and saving lives. These events cannot go ahead this year, so the charity is asking its supporters to take part in Together We Run instead, a virtual fundraising challenge from 14 – 20 September, to run (or walk) a combined 2,000 miles, wherever and whenever suits them. If successful, this virtual running event could become a regular addition to the charity’s event calendar, along with its Only the Brave muddy obstacle run and Trek 24 walking challenges.

A Mundesley family have described how care from East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) “feels like a big hug when you really need it most”, as the organisation launches a fundraising campaign to provide two ‘star’ nurses. EACH is asking supporters to do 100 star jumps a day over five days and raise at least £50, as part of Star Makers. The charity hopes its campaign will raise £64,000 in total, enough to provide two of the nurses whose help is so greatly valued by families like the Palmers. Ellie, six, lives with sister Eva, nine, mum Laura and her mum, Ellie’s grandmother, Heather. Laura is full-time carer to her girls, who are both home-educated, and Heather helps with care, too. Ellie has Down’s syndrome, Ollier’s disease (a very rare bone…

Tia's Treasures Young Epilepsy JustGiving Page has reached our £1000 target yesterday evening.As previously mentioned we had planned to hold a Fundraising event of some kind to celebrate Tia's Treasures 9th Birthday on 21st May to hopefully achieve our target but due to the current situation with Covid 19/Corona Virus this unfortunately wasn't possible.We had been thinking of ways of how we could raise the last £200 to achieve our £1000 target from the comfort of our home and as I (Lisa) was long overdue a hair cut (last one was just before Christmas)I decided to brave the shave as part of the Cov Head-19 Challenge.The Covhead-19 Challenge was launched last month by William Bull from Oxfordshire who wanted to "get people making the most of a bad situation".

Norwich City footballer Tom Trybull and his wife Anna have donated £5,000 to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), plus a bag of clothes as the charity gears up to reopen five of its shops. The money comes from sales of children’s book The Story of Tommy T. Tommy T is a pigeon trying to make his name in football. The story is written by Anna, based on the exploits of her husband and encourages young people to follow their dreams. It will go towards EACH’s fundraising appeal set up at the start of lockdown to address a forecasted income gap of £1.8m over 12 weeks, caused by the cancellation and postponement of fundraising events, and the closure of the charity’s 43 shops. Following the government announcement that non-essential shops can…
