And weighs 35lb!

We are a small group of volunteers working for the East of England Ambulance service.

We have received special training in enhanced life support so that we can respond to medical emergencies in Soham, and other areas locally.

Even though we are a small voluntary group we cover more than 90% of the hours every week.

We are mobilised by the ambulance service as well as the ambulance resource, but as we are already in Soham, (even driving under normal road conditions), we can be with you within a few minutes, which in serious medical emergencies can make a difference.

We are liable to attend people with Chest Pain, Difficulty Breathing, Unconsciousness, Fitting and other potentially life threatening medical emergencies.

Money donated to us helps provide items such as batteries for our equipment, contribute towards petrol, help buy extra equipment and also helps provide extra training. All of which we would normally have to pay for ourselves or take time out to fundraise.

Currently as group coordinator I am also raising awareness and funds for Public access defibrillators for Soham.

Thank you


Creative Minds

Creative Minds is a group which was originally set up in 2013 and runs in Soham every Wednesday afternoon, currently in St Andrew's Church, with an average weekly attendance of ten people. It aims to promote positive mental well-being through art activities and offers a relaxed social setting where people can join in with the activities or just sit and chat over a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit. Each week a different art activity is offered by one of the two main leaders, using various mediums, techniques and themes. It is open to any adult but children of those who attend are also welcome to join us in the school holidays. We have a policy of not charging to attend and provide free refreshments as well as art equipment to use. Overall we aim to provide a safe space where people can relax and express themselves through the activities in order to encourage positive mental well-being.
