Ben is one of the newest members of the team and his role is to provide a service to Cornwall Air Ambulance customers by collecting and delivering donations. His background is in theatre as he spent eight months working at the Minack Theatre and has also been involved in shows that took him across England and Europe. Ben and his wife moved back to Cornwall to start a family and while he is still interested in the theatre his most important pastime is time spent with his family.
Having relocated to Cornwall from Cambridgeshire in March 2018, Bobby saw an opportunity to go on a bit of an adventure and experience a change in lifestyle and take time to enjoy the countryside and take in the sea air, now living only five minutes from the beach.
Bobby spent nearly twelve years working with Cambridgeshire County Council in various roles. He was asked to organise the Christmas appeal for Children’s Social Care, receiving presents for children in need who may not otherwise receive a gift at Christmas time. He really enjoyed arranging these so when the opportunity came up to work for Cornwall Air Ambulance he jumped at the chance and is looking forward to supporting the charity and meeting all the great people who help keep the air ambulance flying.
Craig joined the team at Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust in 2012 and is one of our two regular pilots. His flying experience includes flying for Trinity House, serving the lighthouses from South Wales to the Channel Islands.
Craig enjoys running, and has competed in many running challenge events - including the London and Paris marathons - for charities including the Cornwall Air Ambulance.
Doug joined the Army Air Corps in 1992 and spent the first seven years as a Signals Detachment Commander stationed all around the world.
After being awarded his Army flying wings in August 2000 he converted to the Lynx helicopter. He was posted to Northern Ireland (NI) where he led multi-aircraft/multi-type formations down to ground level at night.
Doug left the Army in 2007 after 15 years of service with more than 2000 flying hours and a commercial licence. He then flew with Bond Air Services in South Wales for six years, flying approximately 1200 hours and being awarded with two Superintendent's Commendations.
With an extensive background in graphic design, Charlotte joined Cornwall Air Ambulance in February 2018 as our Design and Marketing Content officer. Originally from Berkshire, she previously worked for Ambleglow – a design and marketing agency in Maidenhead until she came to Cornwall in 2011 on maternity leave and made the decision to relocate here.
Following relocation, she continued to work for Ambleglow remotely from her home in Cornwall for a further 7 years, commuting to Maidenhead on a regular basis, but with the birth of her second child, made the decision to find a new challenge closer to home.
When she’s not running after her two children, Charlotte spends her spare time doing ballet and street dance and has an eclectic music taste.
Chlöe joined the charity in July 2018 as Communications & Media Officer. With a passion for meeting people and writing, Chlöe spent two years as a reporter at The Cornishman newspaper in Penzance, covering a whole host of weird and wonderful local news stories, before moving into charity communications, working as a Press Officer with the RNLI. Originally from Glasgow, Chlöe relocated to Cornwall to live by the beautiful Cornish coast and is thrilled to join the charity at such an exciting time.
Chlöe loves to travel and spent the last year travelling through India and Southeast Asia learning about different cultures, meeting lots of amazing people and sampling some great food. Away from the office she enjoys hiking and doing a spot of yoga.
Chris spends his time driving the width and breadth of Cornwall collecting and delivering charity donation jars. He visits camp sites, holiday parks, pubs, garages and shops in different regions every day. He enjoys the stunning scenery and now has an extensive road map of the county in his head!
Chris moved from Salisbury to Cornwall in 1999. He had spent the majority of his career in the motor trade work as an auto-electrician but decided that he’d like a more balanced work and home life. He and his wife have two young boys and the family enjoy taking advantage of the beaches and generally being outside in this lovely part of the world.
