Dr Pam Chrispin is retiring from East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) after 14 years with the life-saving charity and an incredible forty-year-medical-career. Pam’s contributions to healthcare across East Anglia have been enormous, and she has proudly ‘kicked the door down for women’ along the way, becoming EAAA’s first ever female flying doctor in 2007, back when all of EAAA’s doctors were volunteers. In that time, Pam has helped to shape EAAA into the leading air ambulance service that it is today. In 2016 Pam was one of the first doctors to be formally employed by EAAA and in 2018 became EAAA’s first Deputy Medical Director, a post she will hold up until her retirement on 31st January, following a highly distinguished career.

Barnham Broom will be supporting, local mental health charity, Norfolk and Waveney Mind throughout 2022, as they name them as their charity of the year. Norfolk and Waveney Mind offer an extensive range of mental health services, along with associated training, advice and information. They work to reduce the stigma associated with mental health, support people in the recovery and champion better services for all. Health and wellbeing has been a strong focus at Barnham Broom, particularly with their recent campaign Time For You, which invited individuals to the resort to relax, feel at ease and prioritise themself and their own time. This strong focus on wellbeing was one of the many reasons Barnham Broom wanted to support Norfolk and Waveney Mind.

Norwich City legend Grant Holt conquered his fears and plunged 13,000 feet for a daredevil skydive in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). The Canaries hero took on the adrenaline-charged fundraiser at Beccles Airfield on Friday morning, along with ARC Group Managing Director Chris Ford. Grant is an ambassador for the company, which has chosen EACH to be its charity partner in 2022. “I’m petrified of heights but when I woke up and even when I arrived I was surprisingly calm and looking forward to it,” said the former striker, who helped Norwich to back-to-back promotions and was named player-of-the-year three times at Carrow Road. I wasn’t too bad in the plane, either, and it was only when the door opened that I thought ‘oh wow, here we go’. …

Music maestro Barry Holden has taken to shop volunteering to ‘strum’ up more funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). The 76-year-old has raised thousands of pounds for children’s charities, including EACH, by staging a series of Live Aid-style concerts in North Walsham. The first was in 1986, inspired by Sir Bob Geldof’s global fundraiser, and another took place in January 2005 in the aftermath of the devastating Boxing Day tsunami. Barry’s gigs have since taken place every year, apart from the last two because of COVID, and raised in the region of £100,000. As if that was not enough, Barry started volunteering in EACH’s North Walsham shop six months ago and he was speaking during week one of the charity’s We Need You campaign. The recruitment drive started on…

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is reflecting on a busy 2021 and feeling ever thankful for its incredible community of supporters after the recent success of its Christmas campaign, Gift of Life. Launched in mid-November, the Gift of Life campaign asked EAAA supporters to donate to the 24/7 air ambulance charity this Christmas, to help the crews continue to be there for people in their darkest hour over the festive period. The campaign also encouraged supporters to send a message of support for the crews which could be hung on a Christmas tree in each of the EAAA operational bases, one in Norwich and one in Cambridge, to help give all of the EAAA staff a morale boost. The charity is overwhelmed to have received more than £80,000 in donations…

There was magic in the air when a dashing dragon stomped its way into the grounds of a children’s hospice. The mythical model has been donated by Norfolk’s ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure and will spend the next 12 months at The Nook – East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ (EACH) base in Framingham Earl, near Norwich. Among those to drop him off were Dippy, the attraction’s dinosaur mascot, who met children including Bradley Jackson (pictured). Adam Goymour, Park Director at ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure, said: “With Christmas just round the corner, we wanted to spread a little festive cheer to those who need it most and we hope the children and families at The Nook enjoy the beautifully-painted dragon. Dippy and our staff enjoyed making the special delivery and it’s lovely to support and…

Kind-hearted police officers and staff clubbed together to provide a sweet treat for youngsters receiving care from a children’s hospice. Staff from Norfolk and Suffolk Constabulary handed over more than 350 gingerbread houses during a special presentation at The Nook – the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) base in Framingham Earl, just outside Norwich. They will be distributed to families being supported by the charity, which cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions. Sergeant Donna Flannagan helped oversee the collection, which was organised by nine members of Norfolk and Suffolk Constabulary’s Information Management United, based in Wymondham. They set themselves a modest target but, thanks to the support of family and friends, managed to buy 366 boxes. People either donated the gingerbread or made a cash donation which…

Fancy hitting the road and helping support a leading children’s charity? East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is on the lookout for volunteers to get involved with its daily van runs. This could involve being a driver or going along to help and support one of the existing drivers, based at the charity’s Retail Distribution Centre (RDC) in Thetford. Supply Chain Manager Roger Leggett said: “Our resources are fully stretched and any extra help would make a massive difference. We have four vans and three of them take stock to the various EACH shops, which are dotted throughout East Anglia. The fourth is used more for furniture runs – both collecting and dropping off – mainly in and around Norwich. It might be that someone can drive one of the vans…

Kind-hearted Shanice Green admitted being overwhelmed and crying tears of joy after quadrupling her fundraising target for 2021. The 25-year-old, whose brother, Leo, died in 2010, is a long-time supporter of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and set herself a modest goal of £500. Instead, after arranging a series of events throughout the year, including a successful fancy dress party, she ended up raising more than £2,000. Her phenomenal efforts will help the charity continue supporting families and caring for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. Shanice said: “I’m very proud, happy and grateful for the support I’ve received. To have raised so much is overwhelming. It’s lovely and something I didn’t expect. I cried tears of joy when we hit £2,000. I…
