The Headline Charity: Magpas
Founded in 1971 Magpas is a unique charity which offers support to the ambulance service. The charity heavily relies on public donations to provide the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance and rapid response cars. The Magpas Specialist Medical Teams attend to cases of life threatening illness and major trauma throughout the East of England. Operating 18 hours a day the teams are staffed by highly trained Pre-Hospital Doctors and EEAST Paramedics who volunteer their own time to work with the charity.
Get Involved- all are welcome!

The Ouse Washes Experience is organised by The Ely-Hereward Rotary Club in cooperation with the OWLP Scheme, WWT, RSPB, Environment Agency and Cambridgeshire County Council. It is a sponsored event with 3 routes of varied lengths running adjacent to the Old Bedford River between Welney and Welches Dam. For cyclist there is an extended route.
It is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy the unique and beautiful landscape of the Ouse Washes. Come and enjoy the wildlife and many other attractions the area has to offer, take in the fresh air, keep fit as well as raise money for charity through your sponsorship.
The Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership Team will be there to provide information on the OWLP Scheme as well as participating. So take the opportunity to learn about projects going on within the area.
Whether you are a keen walker, runner or cyclist, or if you just want to get out and about… join in! Whether you are participating individually, as a family or as part of a group come and experience the Ouse Washes!
