The Duke of Cambridge, Patron of London’s Air Ambulance Charity, attended the London’s Air Ambulance Charity Gala on Monday 25th April.
London’s Air Ambulance Charity delivers an advanced trauma team to critically injured people in London every day of the year. Since its inception in 1989, London’s Air Ambulance has provided rapid response and cutting-edge medical care, bringing the hospital emergency department to the scene of an incident, and delivering life-saving treatment to the 10 million people who live and work in London.
In March 2020, His Royal Highness became Patron of London’s Air Ambulance Charity after supporting their 30th Anniversary Campaign ‘Thirty Years Saving Lives’. The campaign was launched to highlight the charity’s vital work in delivering life-saving treatment across London, and encourage support for the development of new facilities. The Charity is now preparing to launch a new Appeal later this year to raise funds for two new helicopters.
The Duke, who previously worked as an air ambulance pilot for the East Anglia Air Ambulance, met with crewmembers, former patients and supporters before delivering a short speech.
