National Air Ambulance Week

NAAW - 2017

National Air Ambulance Week 2017

Making history

For the first time in history, four air ambulance charities across the Eastern Region and the Capital have come together to raise awareness of the emergency pre-hospital care they bring to patients in their time of need. In 2016 alone, East Anglian Air Ambulance, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, London’s Air Ambulance and Magpas Air Ambulance were called out to 6,787 serious medical emergencies, providing advanced critical care at the scene. All these charities rely on funding to ensure they can continue to deliver this life-saving service to thousands of people each year.

Pin badges

One of the many ways our supporters helped raised money this year was to make a £1 donation for a helicopter pin badge. There were four pin badges to collect, each representing the four air ambulance charities. The badges were available throughout the East of England and London.

Go Red… Go Yellow

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance encouraged our supporters to Go Red… Go Yellow to raise money and awareness of EHAAT. Our supporters took on a range of activities in aid of the Charity, from skydiving as ‘Team Red’ or ‘Team Yellow’, to baking a red cake sale, to dressing up as their favourite yellow characters in school.

Thank you to everyone that gave generously or volunteered as a collector throughout the week, we can’t fly without you.
