Funded entirely by donations and fund-raising, the Thames Valley Air Ambulance Service (TVAA) is there 24/7/365 for all of us who live in Berkshire, Oxfordshire or Bucks. One way to support them is by buying some of their Christmas cards, on sale at the Cards for Good Causes Charity Christmas card Shop open in our church from November 4 to December 17, 10-4pm, Monday to Saturday.
On average 3 people every day, will find themselves in a life-threatening situation — a situation that requires urgent high quality medical treatment at the scene before they reach hospital. The air ambulance team, led by a highly qualified doctor, can be there within minutes ready to deliver the same level of care that would only otherwise be found in the hospital emergency department. The Air Ambulance Service is a charity and the Thames Valley team works hard to maximise each and every donation so that the air ambulance service can reach its mission — saving more lives.
Now based at RAF Benson, the TVAA is one of the busiest air ambulance services in the country and is renowned for the professionalism and dedication of its crew — the pilots, paramedics and doctors. They have flown over 16,000 missions but each one costs £2,500. So buying their Christmas cards helps and to find out more ways of helping, click here to visit their website.
