The Heveningham Hall Country Fair Trust is a registered charity that organises the annual Country Fair, Heveningham Concours, and Heveningham Fireworks. All proceeds raised from our events go to the charity. Since its launch the trust has raised over a million pounds for local communities and charities, as well as individual cases of need. The Trust also helps local communities and village projects, with recent donations towards Huntingfield church repairs, Cratfield village hall upgrades, Heveningham community area playground and a new defibrillator for Laxfield Parish.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance is a charity which delivers advanced emergency critical care to the scene of the incident whenever lives are at risk in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, and Norfolk. With two Airbus H145 helicopters and two rapid response vehicles operating from Norwich and Cambridge Airports, EAAA brings the skills, equipment, and clinicians of the intensive care unit right to the side of patients facing the most life-threatening and life-changing accidents and medical emergencies.
The Pear Tree Fund offers holistic wellbeing and bereavement support and information and advice to people with life-changing illnesses or long-term health conditions, living in East Suffolk and neighbouring parts of Mid-Suffolk and South Norfolk, and their families and carers. Our charity also provides to people registered with Cutlers Hill Surgery, free nursing care, as well as emotional, physical and practical support to people reaching the end of their lives so that they can die in the comfort and security of their own homes.
Financial support from Heveningham Hall Country Fair Trust has enabled us to continue offering local support to families affected by illness and disability when they need it most. It has enabled us to reach more people by helping to improve access to our services and support by visiting those unable to get to us at the Pear Tree Centre or offering support by telephone or virtually.
We are now supporting the thriving Halesworth Town Football Club, who have been awarded funds to improve their grounds and facilities which will allow them to be put up for a much needed and well deserved promotion. We wish them the best of luck!
We have recently helped Waveney Gymnastics Club with new equipment, as well as sponsoring three children to take part in the Special Olympics this year in Berlin.
