Creative Mary Hyder is proving a real-life ‘material girl’ and helping raise vital funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. The 69-year-old, who volunteers in the charity’s Swaffham shop, has teamed up with a local upholstery business to source high-quality fabric for EACH customers. The move is already paying handsome dividends and hopes are high it could prove a money-spinner for the Market Place store. Mary said: “It all started when I popped into Narborough Upholstery and got talking to (owner) Simon Emery, telling him about my role with EACH. When he told me I’d be welcome to look in the remnants box, I assumed it would be full of odds and ends and bits and pieces. What I found was far more than that, though. There were yards of high-quality…

He completed the circuit twice, clocking up 5 km, and was joined by proud dad Steve and mum Aga. Steve said: “It was a fantastic day and Matthew loved his first ever Bubble Rush.

A concert rescheduled three times due to the impact of COVID-19 finally went ahead recently, raising £6,000 for Cancer Research UK. The all-women orchestra and choir of Norfolk performed music from popular films and shows, including the Sound of Music, Pirates of the Caribbean and the Phantom of the Opera. Staged at the spacious venue of St Andrew’s Hall, Norwich, over 350 people attended to finally enjoy the afternoon of live music. The concert was the brainchild of music teacher Ann Smith, who first brought together Norfolk’s most talented female musicians in 2018. She said: “Cancer is something that touches so many people’s lives. Cancer Research UK, the world’s leading independent cancer charity, was the most appropriate cause to support.”

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices staff and volunteers stepped back in time to celebrate a 1940s-themed weekend in Sheringham. The annual feast of nostalgia took place on 18th and 19th September and was run by North Norfolk Railway.

The Community spirit is alive and well in Loddon and Chedgrave as a sponsored walk to Hardley Mill organised by a newly formed support group raised £700 for a Women's refuge, and the mills restoration project. The sale of covid masks in a cafe also brought in a further £800 to help the support group ChetChat as well. ChetChat, who organised the walk, have been a positive outcome borne out of the pandemic lockdown. They were originally conceived to support the isolated, lonely and housebound by offering help and friendliness. Their aim was to help people in need by doing simple things for them like their shopping, weeding their gardens or collecting their prescriptions. However, having become aware of both Leeway the Women's refuge being in need of financial support…

On Friday 10 September, East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) celebrated Air Ambulance Week 2021 with a special event in Norwich to mark the official opening of the charity’s newly extended and renovated 24/7 operational base and headquarters at Norwich Airport.
