We’ve completed our 25,000th mission.
Thursday night’s call out to Northamptonshire marks a huge milestone in the charity’s history.
The critical care team carried out the mission by road in the night car supporting East Midlands Air Ambulance after a report of a man unwell at home at Burton Latimer.
Director of operations Richard Clayton thanked our supporters for their help over the years.
He said: “It’s a remarkable achievement for a service that only launched in 2003 receives no government funding and relies on support from local communities to keep flying.”
To mark the occasion we’ve launched a new appeal calling for help in keeping us flying and we’re also organising reunions for former patients.
