In 2011 when Tia was just 6 she set up Tia's Treasures fundraising for various charities by selling her handmade keyrings and bracelets and within 5 years over £10,000 had been raised. Nearly 10 years on and Tia's Treasures is still going strong, we have just funded our 20th Seizure Alarm.

Over 100 residents of Brisley and surrounding areas managed to take part in a Santa walk earlier this month, with the organisers working hard to make sure they could help East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) during a time the charity has never needed more support. Brisley’s village hall committee were behind the fundraising effort, supported by a generous grant previously received from the Norfolk Community Foundation, and ensured the event complied with all relevant regulations, and kept participants safe. Those who took part walked a signed course before receiving a certificate and gift from Father Christmas. Outside the village hall, they were able to enjoy mince pies, hot sausage rolls, mulled wine and festive music by the Fakenham Ukes. Great care and creativity meant stalls offered seasonal games, without the…

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) has revealed that its helicopter emergency medical service has been tasked 30,000 times since the charity was established 20 years ago. Although not something to celebrate, as each tasking represents someone who’s life was in danger, this is a significant milestone for the charity, which covers the region by helicopter and rapid response vehicle (RRV). EAAA operates 365 days year, 24/7 by RRV, and is almost completely funded by the generosity of people across East Anglia. Its critical care teams, stationed at Norwich and Cambridge, provide emergency cover across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk, taking the A&E department to the roadside or bedside of those in a time-critical, life-changing situation, where every second counts.

East Anglian Air Ambulance is sharing a story about a one-year-old child who suffered serious burns whilst on holiday in Norfolk, to raise awareness for the charity and its Virtual Gifts Chrsitmas appeal. In July, the Day family, from North London, were enjoying a summer break at Fritton Lake, near Great Yarmouth. Dad Chris, mum Bailyn and one-year-old Charlie were getting ready to leave the lodge, packing up for the trip ahead. Unfortunately, as lunch was being prepared, Charlie excitedly burst into the kitchen. Within seconds, he had reached up onto the kitchen counter and pulled a pan of boiling hot water all over his chest, torso and face, causing him to scream out instantly in incredible pain. Charlie’s parents rushed him into the shower to try and cool the…

Mother and son duo Kate, a teacher at Hopton CEVC Primary School, and Toby Jones, 21, an Exeter university student, completed the mammoth challenge of cycling and running to every town across Norfolk to raise over £1,500 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). It was Toby who had the idea back in March when lockdown first hit the UK. Having returned home from university, he was studying online and had a part-time job, but still felt he wanted to take on an extra project. On his one day off a week he would cycle to three or four towns in a day and proud mum, Kate, decided to join him. The pair decided to make a contest of it and raise money for EACH at the same time. Toby cycled…

Toby was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2018 after 5 Ambulance rides, Asthma in 2019 and a Chromosome Deletion in 2020, he is due to have an over night stay at Addenbrookes Hospital for a Video EEG, MRI and Lumbar Puncture for his Epilepsy and Dystonia.

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) has revealed that despite a challenging year, plans to start flying 24/7 from its new Norwich headquarters are on track for 2021. This week, the charity’s Chief Executive Patrick Peal visited the site of EAAA’s new 24/7 base at Norwich Airport to mark the end of exterior building works, which have been delayed by 16 weeks due to the pandemic. The £7 million base project was started in January of this year and was originally planned to be finished by the end of 2020. The new base is a key development in enabling the charity to start flying 24/7, from a state of the art purpose-built facility, with improved rest and welfare facilities for the crew. The funds for the base were ringfenced from years…

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…
