'Move for MAAC' in May
Fundraising for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity
‘Move for MAAC’
Get moving throughout May to raise money for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, we are encouraging all our colleagues to clock up the miles for MAAC and see if as a team we can raise funds for this vital, lifesaving service.
Since 1991, Midlands Air Ambulance Charity (MAAC) have undertaken more than 70,000 missions via one of their three air ambulances, or three critical care cars, making their organisation one of the busiest pre-hospital air ambulance-led services in the UK.
The charity’s mission is to provide patients with outstanding pre-hospital care and lifesaving intervention at the incident scene. They attend up to 12 patients a day, responding to some of the most traumatic injuries including cardiac arrests, road traffic collisions and sporting injuries.
MAAC are also tasked to a whole range of missions where the expertise, advanced clinical skillset, specialist medicines and equipment they bring to scene can make a vital difference to a patient’s survival and recovery.
Each year, it costs between £11-12 million to maintain the three aircraft and the provision of a lifesaving service. The charity does not receive funding from the Government or National Lottery for its daily missions so relies entirely on the support and generosity of local people and businesses.
