CHARITY INFORMATION

Several charities have benefited from the Football Aid games at Carrow Road over the years:

•    Norwich City Football in the Community - £1,900 over two years towards football activities for adults and children with a range of disabilities across Norfolk and North Suffolk.

•    East Anglian Air Ambulance - £1,000 towards equipment and funding of the helicopter. Peter Mendham, Area Manager explained, "The grant from Football Aid/ Field of Dreams helped towards the general running of the East Anglian Air Ambulance.  East Anglia has been defined as the most rural area in the country with major traffic black spots therefore the need for an Air Ambulance is prevalent.  It is predominantly used for emergencies but also used for non-life threatening incidents and inter-hospital transfers. We cover an area of 5,000 miles, the population of area 2.5 million.  We have 1 pilot and 2 paramedics flying at any one time and we can draw on 4 pilots, 15 paramedics and 4 volunteer doctors, flying an average of 4 missions per day - 7 days a week - 365 days a year.  Apart from the paramedics being NHS funded we are funded entirely by public donations."

•    James Paget Healthcare Trust - £1,228 which purchased new equipment for the newly refurbished Special Baby Care Unit. This was essential to keep up to date with neonatal developments and provided bedside care for sick new born infants.

•    St John Ambulance, Norfolk - £450 towards an appeal for a new ambulance.

•    Hope and Homes for Children - is a registered charity working in 13 countries in Eastern Europe and Africa. Their mission is to give hope to the poorest children in the world - those who are orphaned, abandoned or vulnerable - by enabling them to grow up within the love of a family and the security of a home, so that they can fulfil their potential. They received funding to help vulnerable children in Sierra Leone.


January 2010 Update - The £1,700 club nominated proceeds went to the James Paget University Hospital, providing high quality services to patients, as well as training over one third of the medical students from the University of East Anglia and has a strong national reputation for research and excellence.

"The James Paget University Hospitals Charitable Funds wish to express their thanks for the continued support received from Football Aid and Field of Dreams. The Neo Natal unit will benefit greatly from the provision of two new saturation monitors which will enhance treatment available to countless children."
