Story

The Essex and Herts Air Ambulance trust is a charity organisation that saves lives every day. They provide medical services to people in crisis situations and they get people to specialist hospitals that they urgently need. They give people the best chances of survival that they wouldn't of otherwise had in states of emergency. 

On the 5th of July 2017 my dad had a sudden brain haemorrhage and the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance did all they could to save him by getting him to a specialist hospital in Oxford. Most people that have a similar haemorrhage to what happen to my dad don't even make it to the hospital, so they gave him the best chances possible. Without them I wouldn't of been able to see him as I had been away studying in Australia for 4 months and our family wouldn't of had the chance to say goodbye.  I will be forever grateful to them for this. 

I want to raise some money for them so they can carry on providing this amazing service to others. It costs on average £2500 for each person they pick up in their helicopter so its not a cheap but what they do is priceless for the person in need and their families. We have already raised an amazing £1000 at my dads funeral but I thought it would be even better if I could cover the rest and more as I'm so very grateful for what they've done and continue to do for others . 

I am raising £2,100 to take part in Trek Mont Blanc  on the 6th till the 10th September 2018. The cost of the expedition is 1,196 and will come out of the funds raised. 

Thank you so much everyone for the support.
