Charity Fundraising

Here’s a quick run-down of the fund-raising we’re currently undertaking for local charities, as well as some previous success stories.
 
 

Music at Mollett’s – 10th September 2022

This year our fund-raising event will be on Saturday 10th
September, from 6pm till late, when we will again be filling our east paddock with the sound of music, along with good food, drink and company.
 
Join us to be entertained by the fabulous J.S. & The Lockerbillies rockabilly band and browse our craft stalls, whilst sampling locally produced beer from The Krafty Braumeister and enjoying a delicious bite from our street-food selection.  We’ll have marquees up as insurance against rain and there’ll be toilets and plenty of parking available.

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA)

The EAAA has grown from a small charity, flying a single helicopter one day a week, to an amazing organisation operating two high-tech helicopters both day and night from Norwich and Cambridge airports.  They deliver highly skilled doctors and critical care paramedics by air or car to seriously ill or injured people across the region.  They’ve even landed twice at Mollett’s Farm – once to assist one of our guests and once to help somebody who’d been involved in a crash on a nearby road – proving that you just never know when you might need their services.

Your chance to help:  We’re asking guests to keep the EAAA airborne via our Book Online facility, by donating £1 for each night they stay with us.  You can read more about the East Anglian Air Ambulance or use the following link to Donate to the EAAA directly.
 
 

Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI)

Although the RNLI is a national organisation, they have a strong local presence and draw on volunteers from the local area (evidenced by the fact that one of them designed our first web site and another keeps our network and Wi-Fi running smoothly!).  They have lifeboat stations at Aldeburgh, Southwold and Harwich, and lifeguards at Southwold – all supported entirely by public donations.  Whether you’re paddling in the sea, kayaking in the rivers or sailing over to Holland, you or somebody you love may need their help one day.

Publicly Accessible Defibrillator (PAD)

We asked, and you didn’t let us down!  Our goal was to install a publicly-accessible Automated External Defibrillator (AED) at Mollett’s Farm.  This would give us, our guests and members of the public access to this critical piece of life-saving equipment at any time of the day or night, simply by dialling 999.  It’s completely automatic and requires no previous training to use; you just follow the spoken instructions.
 
Thank you!  Helped by a steady stream of donations from our guests, we succeeded in installing the PAD/AED in April 2020.  It’s now sitting warm and snug in its secure, heated cabinet ready for immediate use.
 
 

Music at Mollett’s – September 2021

Our previous fund-raising event received really positive feedback and raised over £1,100, split equally between our two charities – the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the RNLI – so thanks from us all!
 
Musically entertainment was provided by the brilliant J.S. & The Lockerbillies rockabilly band and we had lovely (and locally-produced) food and drink from Bagel or Beigel and The Krafty Braumeister.
 
Our thanks also to those local businesses and individuals that pitched in to help us make the event (and the fund-raising) a success: Farnham Leisure, Friday Street Farm, Premier Toilet Hire, NFU Mutual (Ipswich), J.J. Sugrue, the Sampsons, Ron, Alan, Collette and Rosie.
