Shoot a video and nominate three friends to do the same - during National Air Ambulance Week
Magpas Helimedx are joining other Air Ambulance charities across the country to celebrate National Air Ambulance Week (NAAW), which takes place next week (22-28th September 2014).
NAAW is an initiative created by the Association of Air Ambulances (AAA) and celebrates the work of your local air ambulance, giving them a national voice and an opportunity to promote the crucial work they do.
Together, the UK's air ambulance charities operate 36 helicopters, have a volunteer network of over 2,500 people and are one of the most exciting and innovative group of organisations in the UK. With many investing funds to extend their flying hours, expand their operations to provide night HEMS missions, upgrading their aircraft or placing investment into the advanced education and training of their paramedics and doctors, there is no better time to show your support!
In 2013, the NAAW campaign was boosted by the creation of a celebrity video montage which featured 17 celebrities and sports personalities quoting the words, "I support my local air ambulance, do you?"
This year, Magpas Helimedix are urging the public to get involved by recording a short video saying the same words, "I support my local air ambulance, do you?" and then nominating friends and family to do the same.
The video can then be:
*Uploaded to Facebook: mentioning Magpas Lifesavers in your update, using the #NAAW2014 hashtag, so that we can see your video too!
*Uploaded to Twitter: @Magpas_Charity again using the #NAAW2014 hashtag
Daryl Brown, CEO of Magpas Helimedix said, "NAAW is becoming a regular feature on people's event calendars, there are so many different ways people can get involved. The creation of a video is probably one of the easiest ways to take part this year and we look forward to seeing how the public respond."
