Reaching a medical emergency quickly can be the difference between the life and death of a patient in need. We are fortunate to have been offering discounts to the Emergency Services, NHS and Armed Forces since September 2008, and are so proud to look after those that look after us each day.
Every day of the year, your local air ambulance (Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland) is helping save more lives. Their critical care paramedics, doctors and pilots attend an average of six rescue missions a day.
Within an average of 10 minutes they can be on the ground delivering lifesaving care at road traffic collisions, sports events, industrial accidents or medical emergencies such as cardiac arrest, stroke or accidents in the home. The air ambulance gives people the very best chance of survival and recovery.
Your local air ambulance is supported by a Critical Care Car, which provides valuable backup for incidents close to the helicopter base or when the weather makes it too dangerous to fly. It also enables their doctors and critical care paramedics to run a night car service so that they are available to reach those in need 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
The charity receives NO government funding and relies entirely on generous donations from members of the public to raise the £1,700 needed for each rescue mission.
What will Blue Light Card be doing?
Our partnership with your local air ambulance (Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland) has two primary elements to it, raising money for them and raising awareness about the vital work they do.
In addition to running various events to raise money, we will be selling items to raise money and organising other fundraising activities. We will also be bringing you regular updates and information about your local air ambulance, showing you all what they do and have done for others.
From a breath-taking sponsored skydive or heart-pumping fun run to donating the proceeds of a delicious bake sale, all fundraising efforts are appreciated - no matter how big or small.
