VOA: Colleagues visit the Yorkshire Air Ambulance airbase


every now and again certain days of your life are literally life-changing and on the 11th of March 2017 such a day happened to me and my wife. Been on the motor bike just out for a quiet tootle you end up in the hospital after a serious road traffic accident and if it wasn’t for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance I wouldn’t be here today visiting the site that saved my life.
Adrian’s story has really resonated with people across the agency so we’re really thrilled to be linking up with the association of air ambulances charity with our offices around the country. We are excited to be able to raise awareness and look to save more lives together.
It has been brilliant being with Adrian today at the Yorkshire air ambulance. I was Unit Head in the North East when Adrian had his accident. Locally we raised loads of funds and the fundraising we’re doing will help everybody nationally – all the association of air ambulances. It is vital that money is raised through different charities through different events to keep these operations running It has been great to come to the headquarters of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and meets the rescuers that saved Adrian’s life. I’m personally very honored and humbled to have been here today at the launch of the charity arrangement and partnership between the VOA and the Air Ambulance charities. It’s just frankly been a fantastic day and it really brings it home when you’re able to connect this arrangement to the fact that someone in your own organisation has been saved. Just a fantastic day all round. Please everything you can – can you donate so the air ambulance charities to keep this fantastic service going to hopefully save other people’s lives. You just never know it’s always somebody else that’s gonna get involved in an accident it’s never gonna be you but it was. And fortunately for us we had the Yorkshire Air Ambulance that saved his life
