How a legacy shaped the future
Magpas Air Ambulance started life in 1971 with doctors attending the scenes of road traffic accidents across Cambridgeshire in order to provide much needed lifesaving emergency medical care. As a volunteer lead charity, it was a gift in a Will that enabled Magpas to buy the essential equipment needed to establish this pioneering service and ultimately grow into the organisation it is today.
In more recent years gifts in Wills have helped the charity to develop into a 24/7 service, treating patients across 12 counties in the East of England and serving a population of over 10 million.
