£34,000 raised from Virgin London Marathon

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last week, you will know that the annual event of the Virgin London Marathon occurred on Sunday 28th April.

Well, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who ran for our charity and helped to not only raise an incredible amount of money, but also the awareness of the life saving work we do. We had runners for both services, The Children’s Air Ambulance and The Air Ambulance Service, including our very own Press Officer, Camilla Raca, who smashed the course in just over 5hrs!

As for all the runners, they did fantastic on the day and we can’t thank them enough for all the funds that have been received. So, here’s to our Children’s Air Ambulance Runners;

We also had many of our own staff and volunteers attending the event, not only as support for the runners but also to share the work we do with others. Thank you to everyone that took time out of their weekend to trek down to London and represent the charity in such good form.

So, if you’re thinking about running next year, then get in touch with our team here.

 

 

On average, two children a day could benefit from our transfer service.
