On Wednesday 14th August The Tia's Treasures Team had an amazing afternoon/evening at the Out There Over Here The Mag Community Gathering in Gorleston On Sea in collaboration with Out There Arts, Freshly Greated and supported by Rev Donna Dodson and Magdalen Way Methodist Church and Rev Matthew Price of St Mary Magdalen Church. From helping out with the set up just after lunch time to creating light up jelly fish from umbrellas it really was something we not only enjoyed being part of but also felt honoured to be part of.

Young bookworms have the chance to treat themselves to a new summer holiday read as part of an initiative run by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). The charity, which supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions, has 44 Retail shops across East Anglia. All are running a campaign throughout the school holidays whereby children can pop in and pick up a free book. EACH Head of Retail Central Operations Sarah Throssell said: “We’re thrilled to be running this fabulous initiative again. “It’s a regular school holiday event for us and, as ever, we hope it encourages and entertains young readers throughout the summer. It’s always popular and well-received, particularly during the school holidays when families may be struggling for low-cost ideas to keep children entertained".

On Sunday 14th August, Richard who had never stepped foot on a plane before let alone dived down to earth from 13,000 feet with speeds of up to 120 mph participated in a Skydive to celebrate Tia's Treasures 11th Birthday and to fundraise for Home-Start Norfolk where Lisa is a Family Support Volunteer. This was our biggest and bravest (and more than likely most craziest) fundraiser to date. You can view the official video footage from UK Parachuting on the Tia's Treasures Facebook Group or YouTube Channel. Over £1,500 has been raised via the JustGiving page and donations are still coming in. www.justgiving.com/page/tiastreasuresforhomestartnorfolk Your donation no matter how small means a lot not just to Tia's Treasures but to Home-Start Norfolk and the families supported by Home-Start Norfolk too. £20…

The Tia's Treasures Team has had a quick tally up of all the funds raised for charities, deserving causes and individuals since Tia's Treasures began in May 2011. The grand total including the total from the Tia's Treasures Skydive Fundraiser for Home-Start Norfolk so far is a whopping... £11,721.52 Between 2015 and 2018 whilst we still participated in a number of Random Acts of Kindness our fundraising had to take a bit of a back seat due to the arrival of Tommy (January 2016) and Toby (August 2017) followed by a roller coaster ride with Toby's many health conditions and the same again between 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid 19 Pandemic but despite this and the fact we manage to fit our Fundraising around Work, School, College, Training,…

Norwich residents are experiencing a new, more affordable, way of grocery shopping at a new social supermarket based in Russell Street community centre. Shoppers can access discounted food and household essentials at a range of times throughout the week, as well as enjoy a free cup of tea or coffee when they visit. The supermarket’s arrival has been welcomed by neighbours who have created a community flowerbed next to the centre. All of the supermarket equipment can be easily removed to allow other activities to take place at the community centre. Run by local charity, ENYP (Equipping, Nurturing Young People), this is one of three social supermarkets now available in the city. ENYP has been managing the community centre since 2019 following a community asset transfer from Norwich City Council,…

On the 2nd of October 2022, Pips Skips Director, James, will be running in the London marathon. This is James’ first marathon which he is running to raise money for Great Ormond Street Children’s hospital. A charity of which is very close to their hearts. Since 2019 Pips Skips have hosted several different fundraising events, with the help and generosity of friends, families, customers, and suppliers we have raised a jaw dropping £13,533 for GOSH. A figure they could only have ever dreamed of raising but one which has made them eager to raise even more for this amazing charity. Any donations to help raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital and encourage James over the finish line would be so gratefully received.https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/james-hyde-2022?utm_source=Sharethis&utm_medium=fundraising&utm_content=james-hyde-2022&utm_campaign=pfp-email&utm_term=49029022db3444a0b1ceb38406588074.

In a classic English summer sight and sound, brass band music filled the air of a Norfolk stately home garden. The idyllic outdoor concert, by Cawston Brass at Mannington Hall, played to an all-ages 130-strong crowd from babes in arms and families to pensioners. It helped raise funds for the promoters, Sheringham Little Theatre, and the band who are reigning regional champions. A two-hour programme of stage musical and movie tunes entertained audience members, many of whom had picnicked beforehand in the grounds of the hall, which is home to theatre president Lady Walpole.
