It’s National Air Ambulance Week!

September 13, 2017 by Lara Lucas

This week Air Ambulance charities across the UK are once again coming together to celebrate National Air Ambulance Week (NAAW) in this the 30th year of helicopter emergency air ambulances (HEMS) in the UK.

NAAW is an initiative created by the Association of Air Ambulances (AAA) and celebrates the work of local air ambulance charities, giving them a national voice and an opportunity to promote the work they do at a local level.

Tracy Bartram, Communications Manager said: “This year, we are using National Air Ambulance Week to raise awareness of the work of our Charity and Clinical Team. We will be sharing some incredible stories from patients who have needed our service via our social media channels and asking the public to show their support by donating via text from their mobile phone: NAAW01 £5 to 70070.

“Many supporters are holding events on our behalf, others are dressing down and going to school and work in mufti, all with an aim to raise funds for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance during National Air Ambulance Week. For this, we are extremely grateful.”
