“We need to raise £11.5 million to sustain our life saving operation. With demand for our services greater than ever, we really couldn’t keep our, two H145 state-of-the-art, helicopters flying without the help of our local communities. We are delighted that the Lavenham Classics Cars Show for 2018 has chosen to support the East Anglian Air Ambulance this year.” states Ben Walker from EAAA.
Bruce Goddard adds: “Half of the profits from the Show will be donated to EAAA, with the other half going to the local Lavenham Community Council. With the Ambulance service so critical for the people of East Anglia, we are very happy to be supporting this excellent charity this year.”
East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is a charity providing a helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) for the people of East Anglia. Since our launch in 2000 we have attended over 22,000 lifesaving missions, touching the lives of many thousands of people.
Our mission of EAAA is to provide the best possible outcomes for people unfortunate enough to be involved in incidents or medical emergencies. The combination of advanced critical care on scene, a quick response time and rapid onward transfer can be vital in saving lives and improving patients’ prospects of making a full recovery. On average each mission costs in the region of £3,500.
Operating in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk, EAAA are able to provide emergency medical services to a vast area. When necessary patients are flown to the most appropriate hospital for their needs; this is not always the nearest one, but the one that can provide the most appropriate specialist care.
EAAA is entirely dependent on donations and fundraising and receives no regular Government funding. “Together we save lives.”
