Finale to a year of celebrations for Essex & Herts Air Ambulance
As a finale to a year of celebrations marking 20 years of saving lives across Essex, Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) is holding an Evening of Celebration at Chelmsford Cathedral on Tuesday 22nd May.
It 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.
The evening, which will be introduced by CEO Jane Gurney will look back at how the Charity has grown, from one Airbase to two, from one Charity Shop to six, and to the purchase of our own 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.”
Guest speakers will include our Critical Care Paramedic Tony Stone, providing an insight into life as a Crew member as well as his experience in his new role as Patient Liaison Manager. The New Hall School choir will keep guests entertained.
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.
