Mitchells Construction company directors Ben Mitchell and Joe Passmore are taking part in the South Coast Challenge 2018 event to help raise vital funds for the Kent & Sussex Air Ambulance. We will be running/walking/crawling 100 kilometres along the South Downs Way from Eastbourne to Arundel non-stop.
We hope you will be able to support our efforts to raise £850 towards supporting the work of this life saving charity.
Accidents can and do happen to anyone, anywhere so we feel it is important to support this service which relies almost entirely on donations and fundraising and without this kind support, they simply could not continue their life-saving work.
The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust provides a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), responding to patients who have suffered trauma or serious medical emergencies. They operate 24 hours a day, ensuring they can be there for the most critically ill and injured people in our region.
When necessary, their medical crews can provide highly specialist care at the scene; they are able to anaesthetise, perform surgery and give blood transfusions to patients. Following treatment, they can airlift patients directly to the hospital that can best care for them going forward. Around half of the patients they treat are taken to regional major trauma centres, ensuring they can get the care they urgently need without delay.
