Give The Gift Of Life This Christmas
Twice a day the air ambulance is needed (on average) to help a critically ill or injured patient. During the month of December, when most of us will be enjoying Christmas festivities with family and loved ones, the helicopter emergency medical service is expected to be called out over 60 times.
When needed, the team fly at an average of 180mph, direct to the patient. The doctor and paramedic on board, bring emergency care to the scene of the incident, delivering interventions that can be life-saving.
With your continued support, it’s a service that is there, 365 days of the year, for every one of us.
It is not only the medical crew who save lives, but the people like you who support our service.
Here are a few suggestions on how you can help:
