EAAA has revealed that July was the charity’s busiest month on record in over four years and EAAA’s busiest ever July.

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is now permanently able to deliver blood transfusions as a core part of its life-saving service. Following an urgent fundraising appeal made by EAAA in May, the air ambulance charity, which covers Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, is now able to carry packed red blood cells and freeze-dried plasma on every mission. Blood transfusions ensure that the most gravely injured patients suffering a major bleed have the best chance of getting to hospital through increasing oxygen delivery and clot production. EAAA’s Blood on Board project has involved raising in excess of £90,000 and essential partnership working between two of the region’s hospitals, the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) and Addenbrooke’s, and two volunteer-driven blood biker charities, Norfolk Blood Bikes and SERV Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

Hi there I’m Phil and I work for Aviva in Norwich and live in Horsford. On 3rd October this year I will be running the London Marathon. I ran the marathon virtually last year and this will be my first time running on the streets of London. Whilst this is a personal challenge for me, I really want to make it about much more than that and use it as an opportunity to raise some funds for East Anglian Air Ambulance. This is a charity which helps save so many lives each year. Did you know that the East Anglian Air Ambulance was tasked to patients in Norfolk 88 times in April 2021 alone! I want to support this local charity and my aim is to raise over £1000. Raising…

The Rowan Project launched in February 2021 to offer free counselling and support for survivors of sexual abuse in the Breckland area. Anyone over 16 of any gender who has experienced sexual assault, abuse or violence in their lives – both recently or in childhood – can contact the Rowan Project and talk to one of their counsellors in a safe environment. The charity is a new branch of the Daisy Programme which has supported survivors of domestic abuse for over six years developing a trauma based and client-centred approach. The team at Daisy saw an urgent need for more specialist support for sexual abuse, hiring specialised counsellors who have experience and training in this field. “We believe that people should not be defined by the trauma they have experienced,”…

Chris Marshall, aged 49, is a barber from Sheringham and father of two. In May last year Chris was involved in a life-threatening collision with a car near Cromer Golf Club, while he was out training for a 100-mile cycle challenge. When Chris’s wife was first notified about the accident, she was told Chris wasn’t likely to survive. The accident happened around 11:30am on 12 May 2020.

Tonight (Wednesday 30 June) is a landmark moment for East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) and the provision of emergency critical care in the region, as the charity starts flying 24/7 for the very first time. The gap between 1:30 am and 7am where there has been no helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) coverage in the region will now be closed, as EAAA becomes the first air ambulance in the East of England to fly 24 hours a day. Becoming a 24/7 service for East Anglia has been a long-term ambition of the charity, with the initial research for expanding to a 24/7 operation taking place four years ago. Since then, EAAA has taken gradual steps towards achieving this ambition, which importantly included raising an extra million pounds a year to…
