Put your pennies in the pot for
Essex & Herts Air Ambulance
  Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) have unveiled their new collection tins, which is the next move in the Charity’s rebrand.
Since rebranding in March this year, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance has seen a lot of change: a new logo, new helicopter and now the Charity has added new collection tins to the list.

Although many will be familiar with the sight of a green tin in Essex and a red one in Hertfordshire, the Charity has opted for new blue collection tins to be distributed across both counties, removing the idea of separation and bringing the two brands together to signify the united future of the Charity.
Annabel Schwier, EHAAT’s Community Coordinator, said: “We currently have over 3,000 collection tins across the region, and they’re a vital source of support for our Charity. Whether you put your pennies in the pot at a petrol station, your local pub, or at a community event – every donation counts. We couldn’t operate without the public’s support, and we’re very excited to roll out the new tins to really bring together the efforts of our work across both counties.”
Tins will start to be distributed from today, and the Charity’s rebranded ‘big tin’ will be at all EHAAT events going forward.
If you currently hold an Essex & Herts Air Ambulance collection tin – or you would like one for your business – please contact Head Office on 0345 2417 690.
  It's December already and everyone is rushing around with too much to do before Christmas. I'm glad you made time to read your Higgler magazine because I want to send a great big THANK YOU to all our local friends. We really appreciated your support and enjoyed meeting you throughout the year.
Just a few lines about a German Shepherd cross needing a new, very lively, home. Ten month old Lola loves jumping in swimming pools, playing ball, frolicking with other dogs and cuddling up on the children's bed at night. On the other paw is Romany, a Bull Terrier, now an ex-breeding bitch. This big strong lady loves fuss and cuddles, but not good with other animals so needs to be the only pet.
Ollie is still fretting about our teenage kittens, all spayed and neutered and waiting to go and eight year old sisters, Chloe and Izzy, still waiting for a new home. Mum says we will not rehome over the festive season but prospective owners are welcome to view the animals, 10-1pm, Thurs-Sunday until Saturday 23rd December. Please check before visiting in January in case of bad weather. Best wishes from all of us to all of you for Christmas and the New Year. I'm off to my bed by the Rayburn because it's much too cold out there for me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
