Moreton Hall WI News
Despite a chilly night, we had a good turnout. Not too much business and so on to our excellent speaker from the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Ted is a volunteer having had to use the service himself (unfortunately!)
He told us about the helicopters in use, very interesting and not technical for those of us who do not worship things oily and noisy!!. We were sur- prised at the amount of organisation, regulation and safety considerations that are involved in bringing us this vital life-saving service and the cost of the equipment………..!
The initial push to launch the Air ambulance was spear- headed by Frankie Dettori, famous hockey who had need of the service following an accident. From there other Air Ambulances have come into being but the services remains funded by public donation and sponsorship only.
We finished off with our coffee and cake as usual! A good night. Elizabeth Morgan, Press Secretary
The closing date to enter is 28th March, good luck!
The Duchess Of Cambridge Will Visit And
Formally Open The Treehouse In Ipswich
East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) is delighted to announce today (March 5) that their Royal Patron, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, will visit and formally open The Treehouse- a hos- pice service for Suffolk and Essex run by EACH.
During the visit, The Duchess will tour the facilities including the sensory room and music room, and meet chil- dren and their families who receive care and support from EACH, as well as staff and supporters. A private tour of the bedrooms and care area will also take place. Following the tour, Her Royal Highness will make her first public address, before planting a tree in the grounds of The Treehouse to commemorate her visit.
On Thursday January 5, 2012, the charity announced that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge accepted the honorary position of EACH Royal Patron. The Treehouse visit on Monday March 19 will be Her Royal Highness's first public engage- ment as Royal Patron of EACH, and follows a private visit to the EACH Milton hospice in November last year. The Treehouse has revolutionised children's hospice care across Suffolk and North Essex, and was only made possible by the generosity of donors who supported The Treehouse Appeal and raised £3 million in less than 12 months.

The previous EACH hospice in Ipswich was too small and unable to meet demand. Unlike the previous hospice, The Treehouse has a hydrotherapy pool and dedicated sensory and music rooms. Short break care often had to be cancelled if end of life care was being delivered, but the design of the building means this is no longer the case.
During the visit Her Royal Highness will tour the extensive hospice facili- ties and learn first-hand the differ- ence it has made to children and fam- ilies who use the service. She will also meet with supporters who went to extraordinary lengths to raise funds.
Graham Butland, EACH Chief Executive, said: "Everyone at EACH is honoured and extremely proud to have The Duchess of Cambridge as Royal Patron and delighted that she will be formally opening The Treehouse on March 19.
