Main aim of the charity
Since starting their services in 2003, their helicopters take critical care paramedics, doctors and pilots to deliver lifesaving care at road traffic collisions, sports events, and industrial accidents or for medical emergencies such as cardiac arrest, stroke or accidents in the home.
How the employee got involved and why
15 years ago, we started raising money for the Air Ambulance with small bake sales and tombolas because the service they provide to our local community is vital. We often see their grey and yellow helicopter flying out on life-saving missions as their based at EMA like we are, so we could not think of a more worthy cause to support.
Over the years, our fundraising activities have increased to regular raffles, auctions and dress down days in a bid to raise even more money and now, particularly during these challenging times, we want to do everything we can to support their work.
