For people unfortunate enough to be involved in accidents or medical emergencies, the likelihood of a full recovery – perhaps even survival – can depend on the level of specialist medical care they receive and how quickly they receive it. This is where EAAA can help.
The four counties we serve, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk, cover a huge area, much of it rural with many inaccessible and remote places. Add to this a poor road infrastructure and a journey for some seriously ill patients could take more than an hour.
Thankfully, our two specially equipped aircraft can reach patients anywhere in the region within 25 minutes and take them to hospital if necessary. The range of time-critical procedures performed by our highly skilled doctor/paramedic crews at the scene means they offer a standard of emergency care usually found only in a hospital. Essentially, they bring an A&E unit to the patient when they need it most.
We are a 365 day a year life saving service that attends an average 5 missions a day. We receive no regular government funding and it is only thanks to the generosity of people like you that we are able to keep our helicopters in the sky.
If you choose to ride for Team EAAA, you’ll help us save lives. The minimum sponsorship of £150 is enough to fund an hour’s worth of flying fuel. We literally can’t function without it. To say thank you, we’ll make sure you get the best experience possible. You’ll receive tailored support from us to help make sure you’re in great shape for race day, and we’ll provide everything you need to help you reach your minimum sponsorship. Reach your goal before race day and you’ll also get a special EAAA cycling jersey to ride in.
