East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is encouraging more women into frontline helicopter emergency medical service roles this International Women’s Day (IWD). The life-saving charity, which covers East Anglia from its two bases in Norwich and Cambridge, is marking the 2021 IWD by bringing together women from across the organisation to highlight the opportunity for more women in frontline air ambulance roles. The pre-hospital emergency medicine world is still widely considered to be male dominated. The aviation industry is even less diverse, with male pilots making up 95% of all commercial pilots in the UK. The group will discuss this issue in a live, open, virtual panel discussion on Monday 8 March at 8pm with an aim to encourage, celebrate and inspire the next generation and spark meaningful conversations around equality.…

20 years ago on 9 February, East Anglian Air Ambulance flew its very first official mission, to help someone in Norfolk in a serious condition. At this point, the charity, which was set up a few months earlier, in September 2000, only had enough funds to fly once a week, and did so on a Friday. The helicopter was a black Bolkow 105, built in 1977, and was also used as a police helicopter. The crew was a single pilot and two paramedics, different to the double pilot and doctor and critical care paramedic teams who operate today. Records show the first flight was at 16:00pm on Friday 9 February, with a total flight time of 25 mins, covering the flight to the incident scene and back again. The crew…

As some of you know, last year I wrote a fundraising single for Norwich community station Future Radio, This Fine City - a celebration of Norwich and also a message of hope with us all coming together to get through this challenging and unprecedented time.

It’s continued to be a challenging start to the year for us all; for myself, with the lack of gigs and festivals on the horizon, it can be hard to find inspiration. I wanted to start the year on…
