Emergency services will gather in north Norfolk next month for an ambulance station open day that will raise funds for a children’s charity.

The free event, in Middlebrook Way, Cromer, will be held on Sunday 3rd July from 10am to 3pm.

People can find out more about the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST), meet ambulance staff, and explore inside an ambulance and rapid response vehicle.

They will also be able find out more about the work of the Trust’s cycle response unit and meet community first responders.

Proceeds will go to Nelson’s Journey, a charity that supports bereaved children in Norfolk.

Daisy the vintage ambulance will also be on show and Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, Norfolk Police, Cromer Coastguard, RNLI, and Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue will be joining in.

The open day will be opened by North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb and the Mayor of Cromer.

There will also be live music and refreshments and tea and cake stalls.

Dale Meacham-Roberts, Cromer Duty Locality Officer, said: “Hundreds of people came to last year’s station open day, despite the wet weather, and we are looking forward to welcoming the public to Cromer station.

“This will provide a great opportunity to give people a behind scenes look at how we work and meet the people working hard to provide excellent patient care in north Norfolk.”

Last year’s Cromer open day raised more than £300 for Nelson’s Journey. For more information about the work of the charity, visit http://www.nelsonsjourney.org.uk/default.aspx
