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.

The 21st Macmillan Charity Golf Day was held at Barnham Broom Golf Club in October 2019, where over 100 golfers turned out to support the charity. The event was made possible through the support of Barnham Broom, local companies and individuals alike. After golf on the 18-hole Valley Course, a dinner was held along with an auction and raffle together with a variety of donated rounds of golf from many Clubs which were sold by silent auction. Organiser Graham Knights, who is an Ambassador for Macmillan in Norfolk, commented that the amount raised between this event and other fundraising for Macmillan throughout 2019 now equals a grand total of £17,640 – a truly impressive amount made possible by Mr Knights’ hard work and the support of Barnham Broom Golf Club.

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Royal Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), today attended the charity’s celebration of its new Norfolk hospice, The Nook. The royal visit came after a five-year public appeal to raise £10 million, exactly two years since the first ‘turf cutting’ at the site and just over a month since EACH welcomed the first child through the doors to receive care. The Duchess toured the facilities, including a hydrotherapy pool and state-of-the-art sensory room, meeting children and their families along the way. She also made a short speech to some 300 invited guests before being joined by some of the children to unveil a plaque and formally open the purpose-built hospice in Framingham Earl, around five miles south of Norwich.
