All funds raised for Magpas Air Ambulance can help our advanced medical team travel by land or air to people who need it most, like 8 year old Bedfordshire-based Maddy, who was just 8 years old when she was impaled on some railings whilst playing with friends. Maddy suffered severe abdominal injuries and urgently needed the specialist skills of the Magpas Air Ambulance medics. The enhanced doctor and paramedic team provided Maddy with advanced pain relief at the scene, before airlifting her to hospital.
Maddy has made a full recovery and is now a happy, confident, 16 year old and a perfect example of the critical difference our charity can make. Maddy said, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everything Magpas Air Ambulance did for me and I want to do everything I can to help the charity’s amazing cause.”
Magpas Air Ambulance is not government funded and we’re only able to do what we do thanks to the generous donations of our supporters and fundraisers.
We need your help to be able to continue to provide services that help change the lives of people in need of urgent pre-hospital emergency medicine, both in and around the Bedfordshire area and also further afield in the areas we serve.
So sign up today and challenge yourself to go #FurtherFasterGreater to help keep the Magpas Air Ambulance flying.
