Thomas Morris: The ultimate Orange Day supporters

Thomas Morris: The ultimate Orange Day supporters

Staff at Thomas Morris didn’t just go orange; they went above and beyond for Magpas Air Ambulance’s annual Orange Day! The Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire based estate agents pledged to raise £5,000 this May for our lifesaving service – and they didn’t disappoint!

Each branch of the estate agents came up with their own fundraising idea and set out to raise as much money as they could for Magpas. Some wore orange for the day, donning some interesting bright orange suits, and donated money; others hosted bake sales and raffles for the local community. Two very notable fundraising exploits consisted of a car push and a netball tournament and the company even turned their website orange for the whole month of May!

The netball tournament was a huge success! 18 teams took part on the day; everyone got together alongside their spectators and supporters, and competed in the charity tournament. The sunshine was out; there was a BBQ, bouncy castle, cake sale and raffle throughout the day. Teams of all abilities took part and had a lot of fun, and in the end it was The Cherries who took home the trophy.

The car push was an event that we’ve never seen before. Staff from Thomas Morris pushed one of the Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response vehicles for 24 miles in just 7 hours (to represent our 24/7 lifesaving service)! They got off to a slow start; however they soon found their stride and managed to complete the challenge in 7 hours on the dot! The people taking part were sponsored by friends, family and local companies.

The guys and girls at Thomas Morris have outdone themselves this year, they have smashed their original target and raised well over £5,000 for Magpas Air Ambulance! We are so grateful to have such committed and enthusiastic supporters!

He’s afraid of heights, he’s an air ambulance Dr & he’s doing a skydive!

He’s afraid of heights, he’s an air ambulance Dr & he’s doing a skydive!

You could sponsor our very own Magpas Doctor Saad Jawaid, who has decided to jump out of a plane at 13,000ft to raise vital funds for Magpas Air Ambulance!

Saad has been a doctor for more than a decade, and has worked in the emergency department for over 7 years. He worked in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan before moving to the UK with his family in 2012 to develop his career further. Doctor Saad Jawaid currently splits his time between working with Magpas Air Ambulance, forming one of the crucial members of our enhanced medical team, and at Royal Leicester Infirmary. Saad brings his specialist skills by land and by air to patients in life threatening emergencies across the East of England and beyond.

When talking about Magpas Air Ambulance and what he thinks of the charity Doctor Saad Jawaid says ‘It took no time at all for me to become thoroughly inspired by Magpas Air Ambulance. Over the last few months, I’ve attended numerous emergency call outs alongside a critical care paramedic, where we have needed to provide lifesaving treatments on the road side. These patients had little or no chance of reaching the hospital alive, but Magpas doesn't believe that quality care is limited to the boundaries of the hospital, as a result we take A&E level care to the patient.’

The fact that Magpas Air Ambulance relies on generous public donations to continue to provide essential lifesaving care is why Saad decided to take part in the annual Magpas Air Ambulance skydive. He explains ‘the crucial difference we can make has inspired me to fundraise and skydive for Magpas Air Ambulance - despite my fear of heights. It’s just beautiful to know that I’ll be able to pitch in a little for a charity that has been doing outstanding work, and setting the highest standards, for almost half a century.’

You can sponsor Dr Saad Jawaid and help him to provide critically ill patients with his specialist skills and the utmost level of care wherever they may be.

• £14 could pay for Saad to provide a seriously ill patient, who needs to be sedated at the scene, with a shot of Ketamine.
• £20 could pay for a thermal blanket, and as Saad said, ‘Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine is not all about blood and knives. A recent experience of attending a young patient involved in a car crash taught me that a fast heart rate and cold hands can be treated by a blanket, a warm ambulance cabin and few comforting words.’
• You could even sponsor him £55, which would finance the rapid response vehicle our doctors and paramedics use, when it is quicker to get to a patient by land, for an entire day.
