First Bus sent some lovely Hi Vis Vests and a letter from Freddie First Bus and 2 Officers from Gorleston Police Station visited us with some colouring sheets, stickers and pencils. We don't give to receive, we never have done but its very nice to be appreciated for what we do.
In the space of a month Tommy and Toby have posted well over 100 letters and pictures to various Ambulance Stations. Generous people are now offering to donate them felt tip pens, paper, envelopes and stamps so they can continue and a large number of people are nominating Ambulance Stations daily.
Tommy and Toby are following in the footsteps of their big Sister Tia who is coming up to 16. 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 now funded 17 Seizure Alarms/Monitors and we continue to fundraise for charities such as Young Epilepsy and James Paget University Hospital Raise a Rainbow Appeal.
As well as the fundraising the whole Tia's Treasures Team which consists of Mum (Lisa), Dad (Richard), Alex (17), Tia (15), Adam (11), Jamie (10), Tommy (4) and Toby (3) have been carrying out Random Acts of Kindness for a good few years now so taking part in Hit the Ambulance fits in perfectly.
