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 felt very rewarding that it was received so well, gaining radio airplay and local media coverage - including being featured here in an article I wrote for All Things Norfolk - whilst, more importantly, raising funds to help Future find a new city centre studio. 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…

Within 24 hours of being asked to support colleagues who are working in hospitals, nearly 100 staff from the team that works for Broadland and South Norfolk councils put their names forward.Managing Director, Trevor Holden said: “Throughout the pandemic our front line staff have supported communities with the delivery of food parcels, crises support and financial support for businesses. Now they are also offering their free time to continue the fight against Covid-19 and help protect our most vulnerable residents. This has been an amazing and very humbling response.“This is also a really fantastic example of a whole team effort across all the public sector services, working with our local mutual aid groups and hundreds of volunteers.

Over 100 residents of Brisley and surrounding areas managed to take part in a Santa walk earlier this month, with the organisers working hard to make sure they could help East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) during a time the charity has never needed more support. Brisley’s village hall committee were behind the fundraising effort, supported by a generous grant previously received from the Norfolk Community Foundation, and ensured the event complied with all relevant regulations, and kept participants safe. Those who took part walked a signed course before receiving a certificate and gift from Father Christmas. Outside the village hall, they were able to enjoy mince pies, hot sausage rolls, mulled wine and festive music by the Fakenham Ukes. Great care and creativity meant stalls offered seasonal games, without the…

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) has revealed that its helicopter emergency medical service has been tasked 30,000 times since the charity was established 20 years ago. Although not something to celebrate, as each tasking represents someone who’s life was in danger, this is a significant milestone for the charity, which covers the region by helicopter and rapid response vehicle (RRV). EAAA operates 365 days year, 24/7 by RRV, and is almost completely funded by the generosity of people across East Anglia. Its critical care teams, stationed at Norwich and Cambridge, provide emergency cover across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk, taking the A&E department to the roadside or bedside of those in a time-critical, life-changing situation, where every second counts.

East Anglian Air Ambulance is sharing a story about a one-year-old child who suffered serious burns whilst on holiday in Norfolk, to raise awareness for the charity and its Virtual Gifts Chrsitmas appeal. In July, the Day family, from North London, were enjoying a summer break at Fritton Lake, near Great Yarmouth. Dad Chris, mum Bailyn and one-year-old Charlie were getting ready to leave the lodge, packing up for the trip ahead. Unfortunately, as lunch was being prepared, Charlie excitedly burst into the kitchen. Within seconds, he had reached up onto the kitchen counter and pulled a pan of boiling hot water all over his chest, torso and face, causing him to scream out instantly in incredible pain. Charlie’s parents rushed him into the shower to try and cool the…
