London Air Ambulance gets support

FirstGroup, a leading transport operator, has revealed that it is providing London’s Air Ambulance, the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to critically injured people in London, with £100k worth of support over four years.

Avril Gill, FirstGroup’s Marketing Manager, said: “London’s Air Ambulance saves lives.  Therefore the decision to apportion some of our charitable spend to it was an easy one.  We are delighted to provide funding that will directly support the incredible work that the team carries out on a daily basis.”

London’s Air Ambulance Chief Executive, Graham Hodgkin, thanked FirstGroup for its support: “It is as a result of the generous support of companies like FirstGroup that London’s Air Ambulance can continue to provide its life-saving service on the streets of London every day.  FirstGroup is an essential part of London’s transport network, employing Londoners and transporting people in, out and across the capital every day.  To support a charity that is an integral part of London’s emergency infrastructure demonstrates First’s commitment to the community it operates in”.

The London Air Ambulance was previously supported by the Virgin Group. www.londonsairambulance.co.uk
