Gifts in Wills play a vital role
Since 1987, Cornwall Air Ambulance has attended over 28,000 missions, with a third of those being funded by gifts in Wills – that’s incredibly over 9,000. Any gift generously given today, helps change the lives of those tomorrow. Your Will is private and personal and we would never ask you to tell us you are leaving a gift for Cornwall Air Ambulance. However, if you do want to share that with us, we would be delighted to invite you to the airbase to visit the team and see how your gift will make a difference in the future.
“Two year old Talan was in a road traffic accident leaving him with injuries so severe the police closed the Tamar Bridge to allow his parents to get to the hospital, and he had to be induced into a coma for two days.
In the impact, Talan’s little head was hit so hard his skull was fractured right over his forehead. He also suffered an injury to his shoulder as well as seat belt bruising.
The Cornwall Air Ambulance crew arrived on scene and gave emergency treatment to Talan. He was wrapped up and air lifted to Derriford hospital.
After initial tests, it was decided Talan would need the expertise of the Children’s Ward at Bristol Hospital. The crew flew him up to Bristol to receive specialist treatment.”
Your gift could help someone like Talan, please help us to help more people.
