O

n 17 October 2016 Briony EvansBrown (aged 12) was waved off to school, by her dad Alan. Later that day Alan received a call from Briony’s school (The John Leman High School in Beccles) to say that she had fallen in the playground and hit her head, the air ambulance was on scene and could he get there as soon as possible. On arrival Alan received the awful news that she had suffered a cardiac arrest. Anglia One had been tasked at 15.31, carrying Critical Care Paramedic Chris Neil, Doctor Haris Begovic and supervisor Doctor Marcel Rigaud, and the crew arrived at Briony’s side by 15.48. The critical care team administered general anaesthetic, provided specialist pre-hospital care treatment, managed her airway and provided enhanced life support – putting her into an induced coma to protect her brain.

that we wanted to share with you.

year get off to a cracking start when I opened the envelope to a £1,000 cheque from yourselves. When I had a ½ tonne crane wheel fall on the back of my leg in June 2015 I was fortunate enough to have your air ambulance attend the scene and the doctor certainly took the ‘pain’ out of the accident (by the time I left the site I was going to buy everyone there a drink!). I have been unable to fully return to work since that date so you can imagine the absolute delight of being chosen for that week’s draw. Again thank you all so much for the marvellous service you provide it is a pleasure to support

your lottery.

Thank you to all our wonderful lottery
