Tia's Treasures 10th Anniversary Fundraising for East of England Ambulance Service

As today (30th March 2021) marks 3 years since Toby's first of 5 Ambulance rides in less than 2 month resulting in an Epilepsy diagnosis so we thought now would be as good of a time as any to announce our fundraising plans for Tia's Treasures 10th Birthday.

It was on this day 3 years ago where Tommy and Toby's love, respect and appreciation of Ambulances began.

As a Family we have always had total love, respect and appreciation for the Ambulance Service and its Staff as well as all of our front line Heroes and not forgetting our amazing NHS but it's when you require their services that makes you realise just how much love, respect and appreciation you have.

As a Team we have thought long and hard about how we could celebrate the Tia's Treasures 10th Birthday by fundraising for East of England Ambulance Service Trust and as much we would have loved to have organised a large scale Fundraiser as we have in previous years given the current situation with Covid 19 this just isn't possible therefore we have decided to incorporate Tommy and Toby's Norfolk Nee Nors into our fundraising plans which means we will not only raise funds but raise smiles too.

Our ideas were discussed with the Patient Experience Manager and the full details have been passed on to the Communications Team at the East of England Ambulance Service.

Tommy and Toby's miniature clay Ambulances known as 'Norfolk Nee Nors' which have featured on BBC News, Local News and also various Radio Stations will hopefully help us to raise funds and smiles to a cause very close to our hearts.

For every donation made to the East of England Ambulance Service Trust via this Justgiving page Tia will help Tommy and Toby to create a Norfolk Nee Nor to be hidden around our local area.

The aim is to have raised £999.00 by Tia's Treasures 10th Birthday on May 21st 2021 which will have resulted in 999 (an appropriate number!) Norfolk Nee Nors being created and hidden.

Who ever finds a Norfolk Nee Nor is encouraged to post a photo on our Norfolk Nee Nors Facebook Group and it is their choice whether they would like to keep their find or re-hide for someone else to find.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

  • Norfolk Nee Nors

    To show their love of Ambulances and their appreciation for the Ambulance Service, Tommy and Toby from Tia's Treasures have been busy creating Norfolk Nee Nors with the help of their older Siblings Alex, Tia, Adam and Jamie.

    Norfolk Nee Nors are Ambulance shapes made from clay and Ambulances painted onto rocks which are then varnished and hidden for you to find.

    The Norfolk Nee Nors will start their journey in our home town of Gorleston On Sea, Norfolk and with your help they will begin to travel further a field.

    If you come across either a clay Norfolk Nee Nor or a Norfolk Nee Nor rock you are more than welcome to keep it or re-hide it to see how far it can travel, what ever you decide please share a photo with the group tag us on Instagram @NorfolkNeeNors .

     

  • Tia's Treasures 999 Ambulance Station Challenge

    In 2011 when Tia was just 6 she set up Tia's Treasures fundraising for various charities by selling her handmade keyrings and bracelets and within 5 years over £10,000 had been raised.

    Nearly 10 years on and Tia's Treasures is still going strong, we have just funded our 20th Seizure Alarm.

    The Tia's Treasures Team which consists of Mum (Lisa), Dad (Richard), Alex (17), Tia (15), Adam (12), Jamie (10), Tommy (4) and Toby (3) have been fundraising for various charities, deserving and individuals as well as participating in lots of Random Acts of Kindness.

    Throughout 2020 we sent Random Acts of Kindness as a much needed morale boost as well as to show our appreciation to Ambulance Stations, Police Stations, Fire Stations, Bus Stations, Hospitals, Dental Surgeries, GP Surgeries, Schools, Nurseries and many more.

  • Random Acts of Kindness for Ambulances

    Tommy (4) and Toby (3) have been busy drawing pictures and writing letters (with Mum's help) to send to as many Ambulance Stations as they can as part of Hit the Ambulance - a Facebook Group that began in February 2020 which encourages people to hit Ambulances with Random Acts of Kindness (and as many other services that need recognition, appreciation and a morale boost).

    Toby was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2018 after 5 Ambulance rides, Asthma in 2019 and a Chromosome Deletion in 2020, he is due to have an over night stay at Addenbrookes Hospital for a Video EEG, MRI and Lumbar Puncture for his Epilepsy and Dystonia.

    As a Family we have a great amount of appreciation not just for the Ambulance Service but the NHS as a whole as well as all Keyworkers not just through out the current Corona Virus Pandemic but all the time, we have sent Random Acts of Kindness to Police Stations, Fire Stations, Bus Stations, Dental Surgeries, GP Surgeries, Schools, Nurseries etc and some have even got in touch to say Thank you which has given Tommy and Toby more of a boost to continue.

  • Tia's Treasures Random Act of Kindness

    The Tia's Treasures Team are well known not only for fundraising but for participating in Random Acts of Kindness.

    With the imminent return to College, School and Toby due to start Nursery the past couple of weeks has been spent making sure all uniforms are ready for the return after almost 6 months due to the Corona Virus.

    Whilst unable to attend or organise any fundraising events other than Lisa braving the shave for Young Epilepsy Random Acts of Kindness have still been something we've continued with as we believe they are needed more than ever right now.

  • Fundraising News from Tia's Treasures

    Tia's Treasures Young Epilepsy JustGiving Page is currently at 80% of our £1000 target.

    We had planned to hold a Fundraising event of some kind to celebrate Tia's Treasures 9th Birthday on 21st May to hopefully reach our target but due to the current situation with Covid 19/Corona Virus this unfortunately wasn't possible.

    We have been thinking of ways how we could raise the last £200 to achieve our £1000 target from the comfort of our home and I have decided to brave the shave, I've dyed my hair purple many times since 2018 for Epilepsy Awareness so why not go that step further to raise funds?
