Air Ambulance

Following a visit to the TCC office from representatives of the East Northants Air Ambulance, I would like to share that they very kindly agreed for me to take my client (pictured below) and his Wife to visit East Midlands Airport where the crew and Helicopter are based.

We visited on the 2nd September. On arrival we were met by Charlotte and Richard who are both

responsible for the fundraising side of the service. Whilst we were being advised about the great work the service does before going outside to the helicopter, a call came in and we observed just how quickly the team respond; the pilot was in and had started up the helicopter whilst the crew located the incident and loaded up with essential equipment and they were off within minutes. This was a very poignant moment as it bought home to us that as exciting as this was to watch, this was on its way to a major incident where we hope the outcome was positive for the injured parties.

The 24th – 30th September is National Air Ambulance week and I have asked for the team to e-mail with any fundraising events that we can get involved in so watch this space!
