Justin the team BMWs  helicopterelmscambridge new2The MAGPAS Air Ambulance team provide specialist fast response to medical emergencies, which is why they drive products from the BMW range. Elms Cambridge BMW, who have sponsored MAGPAS since 2011, have supplied us with two vehicles to suit the all-round needs of the rapid response team. The BMW X1 xDrive25d is equipped with a 2 Litre, 4 Cylinder Diesel Engine which produces 218hp. The 0-60 time for this vehicle is just below 7 seconds, and it features xDrive Technology. xDrive is a fully variable four wheel drive system which can shift its power from the front to the rear in a 10th of a second. This makes it an ideal vehicle for the Magpas Team.

Elms Cambridge have also provided us with a BMW 530d Touring. The sheer power of this vehicle is truly spectacular and it is crucial in helping Magpas in life saving situations, 24/7. The 530d has an impressive 245hp and 540Nm of torque. The top speed of this car has to be limited to 155mph but can still achieve an impressive 45mpg (combined). Features such as Cruise Control, Spring Foldable Rear Seats and Electronic Parcel Shelf all come as standard and the vehicle has the optional Professional Multimedia system. This is an 8.8 inch screen which we can used for navigation and media purposes. The BMW 530d Touring also comes with BMW ConnectedDrive which connects the car to the outside world. We have a range of services such as a Concierge Services (to send detailed points of interest to the vehicle), Teleservices that will notify the user via email or text of the cars current state of health and SOS Emergency Call which is a safer way to contact the emergency services whilst in the vehicle. Both of these vehicles are designed for different uses but they both play a crucial part in saving lives every day. Justin Reason, Head of Business at Elms Cambridge, explains: "Elms BMW Cambridge are incredibly proud to continue to support Magpas, and the invaluable work their teams carry out in the local community."

Phil Gibbs, MD at Alfa Tail Lifts Ltd, has worked with Air Ambulance charity Magpas over the years, fixing the organisation's training ambulance on many occasions. After an abundance of tail lift repair requests, Phil decided the lifesaving charity could definitely do with a replacement ambulance - and so he set to work!

Phil bought an old ambulance with lots of potential. He then gathered his contacts from around the Eastern Region and asked them to step in and help him give the vehicle a full face-lift, both inside and out. First port of call was Mercedes Orwell Truck & Van (based in Ipswich, Norwich, Newmarket and Colchester) for the maintenance and servicing of the ambulance. Contracts Director Ryan Cory from Orwell Truck & Van explained, "We went over the vehicle with a fine tooth comb and put hours and hours of work into making it 100% roadworthy". Ryan then went on to say, "We are proud to be associated with the emergency services, supplying the East of England Ambulance Service Trust with a lot of their ambulances and so we were delighted to get involved and help out Magpas - their partner and very worthwhile cause".

Next stop for Phil was the livery and paintwork for the ambulance. Who better to ask to assist than David Simonds, MD of Full Circle Enterprises Ltd in Banham in Norfolk, who immediately agreed that he and his team would like to play a valuable role. Full Circle Enterprises spent around £2,500 worth of man hours and paint on these emergency four wheels, leaving it looking as good as new! Director Karen Simonds said, "We have great relationships with other emergency services and so it seemed the obvious thing to do. Magpas does a marvellous job. Thanks to the specialist skills of their paramedics and doctors, an awful lot of people survive horrendous situations who otherwise wouldn't".

Project leader Phil and his fellow counterparts collectively spent around £40,000 on the Magpas ambulance makeover - and proudly visited the Magpas Operations Base recently to officially hand over the impressive looking and sounding (engine wise) vehicle. Phil summed up why Alfa Tail Lifts chose to support Magpas, "The level of training Magpas provides these already experienced senior doctors and paramedics really stands out. They are trained to administer lifesaving anaesthetics in some small spaces and so having a decent ambulance to work in is crucial for the organisation. Giving them a revamped version just seemed like the natural thing to do".

Magpas are extremely grateful to Alfa Tail Lifts, Orwell Truck & Van and Full Circle Enterprises Ltd for the "excellent team work, absolute dedication and hard work involved in renovating this ambulance", Antonia Brickell Head of Communications at the Charity said. "They all just got on and did it - and then contacted us to say the ambulance is ready! This will help us no end, as we continue to bring lifesaving care by land and air to patients in life-threatening emergencies, in the East of England and beyond. Thank you".
