Leading the way on the road to recovery

PHOTO CAPTION (left to right):
Magpas Air Ambulance Dr Jon Barratt with the Head of Business at Barons Cambridge BMW and MINI Mike Toombs and Magpas Critical Care Paramedic Alex Pearce at the Magpas Operations Base - for the official launch of the Magpas rapid response BMWs

For the sixth year in a row, Barons Cambridge BMW are supporting Magpas Air Ambulance and the life-saving care the charity provides by road - as well as by air. It’s a perfectly matched partnership, with Baron’s reputation as class leaders in driving technology and Magpas, a charity renowned in the medical world for the pre-hospital emergency medical training they give to doctors and paramedics.

Earlier this week, Mike Toombs, Head of Business at Barons Cambridge BMW and MINI, arrived at the Magpas Operations Base to officially hand over two brand new BMW X3 rapid response vehicles, enabling the enhanced Magpas medical team to continue bringing hospital level care to patients in life threatening situations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in Cambridgeshire, the East of England and beyond. By fully sponsoring one of the vehicles, Barons feel passionately about investing in the health and wellbeing of their local community; knowing the care provided by Magpas doesn’t just save lives, it can also help people to recover and return to a good quality of life.

Mike Toombs sums up what this means for his dealership, “Barons Cambridge BMW are proud to continue our support of Magpas Air Ambulance for the 6th year running. The introduction of the incredible new BMW X3 rapid response vehicles (replacing the current 5-series, touring rapid response BMWs); not only strengthens our relationship but also the invaluable work their teams carry out in the local community.”

Dan Cody Associate Clinical Director at Magpas Air Ambulance thanked Mike and his team by saying, “We are extremely grateful to Barons Cambridge BMW. BMW have a dedicated authorities division and have a long standing reputation in the provision of emergency service vehicles, improving driving experience and safety”.

So when you see a blaze of orange and green on the roads, blue lights flashing, it’ll be the Magpas Air Ambulance doctors and paramedics on the way to the next life-threatening incident in their emergency BMW.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

RAPID RESPONSE BMW CAR SPEC:

X3 xDrive30d has a 3 Litre engine which produces 258hp. This car has a top speed of 144mph and an impressive 0-62 time of 5.9 seconds.
