Today London Air Ambulance celebrates its 25th birthday. Since its formation, the advanced trauma team have attended most major accidents in the city and have treated over 30,000 critically injured patients. As a charity, they are heavily dependent on public donations to keep up their vital work. For this special birthday it’s asking people to show their support so that it can buy a much-needed second helicopter and also recruit more pilots and fire crew. This would allow it to extend its daylight flying hours in the summer months, and therefore help an estimated 400 additional people each year.
