Calling all superheroes! This summer Magpas Air Ambulance is bringing KAPOW! to St Ives (Hunts) Golf Club… The KAPOW! Superhero Challenge is an innovative, 5k inflatable assault course; packed full of unique obstacles to bounce over, squeeze through and slip and slide on. Take on the challenge dressed as your favourite super hero with friends, family and co-workers this summer, and help us raise vital funds for our lifesaving work!
If you were to meet 35 year old Adam Shailer, from near Peterborough, you’d understandably think he was just like any other dad of two; with a great sense of humour and an impressive ‘can do’ attitude. However, if you were told he is doing incredibly well after genuinely being as close to death as you can get, you might start to see him in a very different light!
Meet office volunteer Fay, a married mum of two who volunteers for Magpas Air Ambulance on her day off from work… “Life is fairly hectic with work, home-life, family and friends, so I try to make sure I have some time in the week to do something for me.” “I wanted to do something really worthwhile, where I felt I could make a difference to people’s lives. I get so much out of being with the team each week, and I can see the work I do makes a real difference.” As a volunteer at Magpas Air Ambulance, any time you can donate will help us save lives 24/7.
Meet Magpas Air Ambulance Dr Rosie Dwyer, a woman who was prepared to travel across the Atlantic to follow her career dream, despite being a minority in her profession. So why did Rosie decide to become a Pre-hospital Emergency Medical Doctor, and why should more women follow in her footsteps… “I really enjoy the work, it’s challenging yet rewarding. My training enables me to make a big difference in a very short space of time, I can really help people when they are at their most vulnerable.”…
In 2017 alone, Magpas Air Ambulance were called to 1603 life-threatening medical emergencies. It is thanks to your generous donations that we can continue to provide our vital, lifesaving care by land and by air, 24/7. Thank you.
