Norfolk commercial Photography. Norse pledges support to the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).
About East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).
The chance to shoot Norfolk Commercial Photography airside for such a prestigious well know charity doesn’t happen every day so when our regular client, Norse Commercial Services asked if we’d like to shoot their latest charitable pledge for East Anglian Air Ambulance, we simply could not resist. Since their launch in 2000, East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) have attended over 16,000 lifesaving missions, touching the lives of many thousands of people. The crew comprises specialist pre-hospital doctors and critical-care paramedics, operating out of two high-tech helicopters from 07:00 until 19:00 from our Norwich base and from 07:00 until 01:30 from our Cambridge base. They were the first air ambulance in the country to attend helicopter emergency medical incidents in the hours of darkness to unknown and unlit sites. We aim to provide the best possible outcomes for people unfortunate enough to be involved in incidents or medical emergencies. The combination of a quick response time, advanced critical care on scene, and rapid onward transfer, when appropriate, can be vital in saving lives and improving patients’ prospects of making a full recovery. (EAAA) are committed to delivering outstanding care, quality, and value to the community, thriving on challenges and looking for innovative ways to grow and improve the service further through an open culture of continuous improvement, by scrutinising our actions, sharing knowledge, and learning from past events.
Paul Bonham, Commercial Director at Norse said: “We are delighted to be supporting the East Anglian Air Ambulance, a vital local service that over the last 15 years has helped over 16 000 people in a wide variety of life-threatening situations. As a company we have exciting plans to involve a number of our different divisions in helping to promote and raise money for the service, and I know our staff will be equally keen to show their support. We are really looking forward to working with the dedicated staff and volunteers at EAAA and to helping them to continue providing their often crucial emergency response.”
The company will be placing ‘Proud to Support East Anglian Air Ambulance’ stickers on Norse vehicles minibuses, school buses and maintenance vehicles, helping to raise funding and awareness of the work of for the EAAA. The company’s catering division will also be looking at opportunities to help promote ‘Tea@1500’, events the EAAA is running to celebrate its 15th anniversary year. EAAA Norfolk Fundraising Manager, Holly Lambert said: ‘We are enormously grateful for Norse’s support of EAAA and are very much looking forward to working with them on a number of campaigns and initiatives. The EAAA does not receive regular direct government funding and so is dependent on our generous supporters to help raise the £8.6 million needed every year to keep our life-saving service flying’. The Air Ambulance Team were showcasing their latest lifesaving equipment, the V-Scan. An intuitive pocket-sized ultrasound device that enables medical professionals including cardiologists, general practitioners, OB/GYN, primary care, emergency physicians and paramedics to easily image at the point of care – transforming the physical exam with more information to determine the optimised course of treatment for patients.
