- How you can help
In September we launched our first Air Ambulance Week Appeal.
Staff and volunteers took to the streets to give people yellow cross pin badges in exchange for donations.
We really did paint the town yellow and helped people show their support for their local air ambulance.
Both our local air ambulances gained accreditation as a Local Education Provider.
Our charity is extremely proud to be part of a national education system training experienced doctors as consultants in Pre Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM).
We launched our eBay site in February.

From the start of the year we employed all our paramedics full time. This allows us to quickly develop them into critical care paramedics – so they can provide advanced medical assistance at the scene and in the air.
