The speed of our helicopter can save a child’s life – but we can’t get off the ground without your help so please give what you can today.
“When the emergency phone line rings, the room goes quiet, the door gets shut, and everyone focuses on the task in hand. Every case is treated as urgent. It is the most important thing happening at that moment. Because we serve the whole country, the flights can be long and complex. The other week, I flew over 600 miles in one day. That day, we transferred one child across the country, and also moved two different specialist medical teams to children who were too sick to travel.”
Mark Woodley, pilot
Our helicopter can cover distances much faster than transport by road. The children we’re called out to help are fighting for their lives. The speed we reach them can mean the difference between life and death.
As you may know, the government does not fund our charity. Though we work very closely with
the NHS, we are not part of it. Your support really does keep our helicopter flying so please give what you can today.
We do not receive any government funding. Only with your donations can we fly the children who need us.
