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.
