Our Commercial Director, Steve visited the East Anglian Air Ambulance earlier on in the month to deliver a cheque raised from a B2B event in Norwich. Just as we arrived the alarm bell sounded and within just a few minutes the crew and doctors were in the air and off to an emergency. Amazing for us to see the calmness and efficiency of the team going into action.
We also learned about some of the other great work they do teaching communities how to do CPR, the training and systems they employ and also an understanding of the costs to run the entire operation (around £11M per year).
Sophie Emmanuel (Fundraising Coordinator) got in touch with us after our visit to inform us of the impact fundraising has on the EAAA
“Since we first flew in 2001 our crew have attended over a staggering 20,000 missions, and all because of the amazing support from our local communities, enabling us to reach more and more people day to day. We are able to assist in all manner of incidents, and because of the money you raise we are able to give them the best medical equipment to aid their work.”
We’d like to thank the East Anglian Air Ambulance for all the hard work they do and for showing us around. Bussey Vehicle Leasing will be looking for new ways to fundraise and support their great work.
