London Air Ambulance, February 04, 2015 - London Air Ambulance is today launching a public campaign to raise an extra £4.4m for a second helicopter for the capital.
We are calling on the people and organizations of London to join together in owning the solution to London’s vital need for a second emergency medical helicopter.
In our largest ever fundraising drive, the ‘Your London, Your Helicopter’ campaign is hoping to raise the remaining £4.4 million needed to acquire and sustain a second helicopter and extend its daylight flying hours for five years.
We are urging the 10 million people who live, work and holiday in the capital to donate, whether £5 or £500 at yourhelicopter.london
Graham Hodgkin, Chief Executive Officer, London’s Air Ambulance, said: “When London’s current, and only, emergency medical helicopter is offline for servicing or maintenance, our patients need us to have recourse to a second helicopter immediately.
London's Air Ambulance has been an everyday part of London life for over 25 years, and we have treated over 32,000 people.
