An Urgent Appeal: Future Lives Depend On You
This is an urgent appeal to the public for donations to help the charity to continue responding to seriously sick and injured patients during Covid-19.
Cornwall Air Ambulance is set to lose a massive £1.5m by the end of the year due to the closure of charity shops, community fundraising and the closure of tourism. This could start to have huge consequences for the charity and the people of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The sustained lack of fundraising income could mean we have to take steps to reduce the cost of operating the service.
Cornwall Air Ambulance is an independent charity, and although we have NHS paramedics in the team, the charity is not eligible for the millions of pounds raised for the NHS. The aircrew have worked hard to keep flying throughout the pandemic, and we have adapted our ways of working and the protective measures in the helicopter. We have a brand-new aircraft, with increased capabilities, we want to make sure we can continue to use it to its full potential.
The more people who can step in now, take action and support the lifesaving work of the charity, the greater the chances are that we can preserve the maximum service levels and reach the patients who need us most in their golden hour of need.
This is an urgent appeal to give direct to Cornwall Air Ambulance, to keep the new helicopter flying and saving lives. Future lives depend on the support of the amazing people of Cornwall. Donate online today.
