We know this is a difficult time for everyone, but despite the challenges we’re all facing, at Magpas Air Ambulance we have seen the communities we serve really pull together. Not only supporting each other, but supporting Magpas Air Ambulance too; individuals, community groups and businesses are coming up with exciting and inventive fundraising ideas (while adhering to government guidelines!). These, in turn, help keep us flying and keep our advanced medical team on the frontline safe, as they continue to respond to critically ill and injured patients 24/7.
