The chosen charity for our club this year is Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, such a worthy cause. They receive no government funding and to provide their service, need to raise over 15M annually.
They provide , by helicopter, a critical-care paramedic and a doctor specialising in emergency medicine., bringing treatment to the scene of an incident, saving lives and giving patients the best possible outcomes.
On average the crew are sent to help 7 people EVERY DAY.
The aircraft can reach anywhere within the three counties in a MAX of 25 mins. They are called when every second counts, delivering patients to a relevant trauma hospital as soon as possible, when necessary.
KSS AA is a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week service.
The people working or volunteering for this organisation are professional, amazingly committed, talented and devoted to what they do. They are truly amazing and I am privileged to have met many of them already.
