We operate emergency helicopter services to make bereavement through trauma rare.


3 years ago I suffered a cardiac arrest at the Belfry in the carpark after a round of golf due to a heart condition I was completely unaware of at the time.  Due to the quick response of two Nurses who was at the belfry at a conference and the quick response of the Air Ambulance my life was saved against the odds.  Even though I now have to live with a ICD (defibrillator) implanted in me and my life has changed for ever I feel incredibly lucky to be alive and want to raise valuable funds for the Air Ambulance so they can save more people
