Essex & Herts Air Ambulance marks the end of a year of celebrations for its 20th anniversary
Supporters and those interested in learning about the work of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) can apply for free tickets to the Charity’s ‘An Evening of Celebration’ on Tuesday 22nd May at Chelmsford Cathedral.
The evening, which brings to an end a year of celebrations marking 20 years of saving lives across Essex, Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas, will include contributions from two of the Charity’s Critical Care Paramedics and music from New Hall School Choir.
The audience will hear from patient Bruce Badcock, who suffered a cardiac arrest whilst driving on the M25, recalling how the intervention of the Air Ambulance saved his life by getting him to hospital quickly.
The event will pay tribute to the Volunteers and supporters who have donated time and money to enable the Charity to provide the best possible life-saving service and pre-hospital care to patients.
CEO Jane Gurney will look back at how EHAAT has grown from one Airbase to two, from one Charity Shop to six, and to the purchase of its helicopter, the AgustaWestland 169.
Jane Gurney said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to bring staff, Volunteers and supporters together at the end of what has been a remarkable year of celebrations marking our 20th anniversary. The organisation has made such amazing progress since it began with a single helicopter back in 1998, and I am really looking forward to celebrating on this day with many of the people who have made that possible.”
With an opportunity to meet and chat to the EHAAT Crew, Staff and Volunteers, those attending will get a chance to see how they all contribute to keeping their local Air Ambulance operational.
