We fly two regional air ambulances, across the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland. These two helicopters provide a rapid response to trauma and medical emergencies over an area of 3850 square miles covering many of the UK’s major road networks including the M1, M6, M69 and M42. With an average response of just 13 minutes, between them they attend on average 6 missions a day.
What is not widely known is that Midlands Air Ambulance receives no Government funding. Each Air Ambulance mission costs £2,500 and in excess of £7 million is needed each year to keep its three air ambulances operational.
We at the Greaves have made a small contribution to this of £760.40 pence.
Many thanks to all,
