Town Mayor's Charities

The Mayor has chosen The Essex & Herts Air Ambulance  and The Thin Blue Paw Foundation as her nominated charities this year.

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) provides Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) for the critically ill and injured of Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. Their aim is to save lives, reduce or prevent disability or suffering from critical illness and injury.

Founded in 1997 with the Essex Air Ambulance and merged with the Herts Air Ambulance which was founded in 2007, their first-class pre-hospital emergency medical service is entirely free of charge. Unlike NHS emergency services, the charity receives no direct funding from the National Lottery and limited funding from the government. It costs in excess of £750,000 every month to keep its life-saving service operational; therefore, its emergency response services would not be possible without the generosity and goodwill of people and businesses.

Whether you’re eager to donate, wish to join its Flight For Life Lottery or view their latest fundraising opportunities, you can learn more at EHAAT also regularly shares patient stories, fundraising initiatives, behind the scenes photos and event details across its social media channels – where you can learn more about how it continues delivering advanced pre-hospital interventions across Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.

The Thin Blue Paw Foundation

The Thin Blue Paw Foundation is a national dog welfare charity which protects, celebrates and rehabilitates both serving and retired police dogs from across the United Kingdom. The Foundation was founded by a group of individuals who are passionate about improving the health and welfare of serving and retired police dogs.

Many people are unaware that retired police dogs do not receive financial support in their retirement from the force they served with, meaning the responsibility for their care and vet bills fall solely to their ex-handler or new owner. 

Unable to get pet insurance due to their working life, many are left with ongoing vet bills which can amount to thousands. The Thin Blue Paw Foundation provides much needed financial support to over 200 unsung canine heroes and their owners to enable them to have a long and happy retirement.  

Their mission statement is “We will protect, celebrate and rehabilitate both serving and retired police dogs from across the United Kingdom.”
