Liz attends launch of new Children’s Air Ambulance

Today I attended the Leicestershire launch of the new Children’s Air Ambulance. 

The new Children’s Air Ambulance will make such a difference to the lives of children and their families right across the country. The Children’s Air Ambulance has now launched two new helicopters, one will be based in Doncaster and the other in Oxford. This means that they will now be able to transport more really poorly children to and from hospital. 

The Children’s Air Ambulance does not receive any government funding, they have been able to purchase these new ambulances from the donations of businesses and supporters. It is a remarkable achievement and I know that the staff and volunteers are rightly proud of what they have achieved.
