rust’s charitable partner is the Children’s Air Ambulance based in Doncaster. Our contribution to the fund raising will be a sponsored fun run around the school site. The following is taken from their website:
The Children’s Air Ambulance began in 2012. After a lot of hard work, dedication and passion we began to transfer specialist paediatric teams to treat seriously ill children. This national service is the first and only dedicated helicopter transfer service for critically ill children – a flying intensive care unit.
In May 2013 we transferred our very first baby to the emergency surgery he needed. We transported Theo to the care he so very badly needed in only 15 minutes. A journey that could have taken up to an hour by road.
Since then we have gone on to achieve over 300 missions!
The Children’s Air Ambulance is dedicated to helping children all across the UK get to the care and support they need. Fast. In fact, we can get children to the care they need 4 times faster than if they were to go by road.
Our charity does not receive any government funding and provides all our services free of charge. We are driven by first class professionals, supported by a small army of volunteers and rely entirely on the generous donations of the public to fund our work.
As we are not supported by government funds we rely on the kindness of people like you to donate to help keep us flying.
We will run the event on Friday 24th May in the afternoon, start times will finalised over the next week.
To make the event as safe and fun as possible we need volunteers to marshal the route to ensure the children follow the correct route. If you can volunteer please let the office know as soon as possible. The children in years 1-6 will run the route with their teachers, reception children we will also need volunteers to run with them and Nursery will only be able to run the external course with a parent, those whose parents can’t attend will complete a run around the field.
We hope to have various stalls, such as cakes, Air Ambulance merchandise and a raffle. Please put the date in your diaries and come along and support.
