Cambridge Airport departs from the festive norm

Filed under: Charity Events — Posted by: Andrew on December 22, 2011

Christmas is traditionally the time of year when companies send cards to their major clients to wish them greetings for the season and prosperity for the year ahead. However, management at Cambridge Airport has taken a departure from this prescribed norm, by making a donation to its local Air Ambulance service.

In a show of thought in keeping with Christmas traditions of goodwill, the airport presented the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) with a cheque to the value of £200. It will certainly go some way to providing local residents with seasonal prosperity.

The EAAA is based at the airport, and has enjoyed a long relationship with the management of the site, where its help is often needed in getting airborne rapidly.

Presenting the cheque to the EAAA Area Fundraising Manager Alison Horsley, the Airport Manager Richard Knight said:

“…we are sure friends of the airport will appreciate (the) gesture…”

Going on to say the airport was delighted to be able to make the contribution, Knight recognised the invaluable service the EAAA provides to the residents and visitors of the region.

Called out an average of four to five times a day, it has been a usually hectic year for the service. There have also been some notable highlights including the opening of a new operations centre to provide a base for the paramedics, doctors and pilots critical to the service’s success.

Completely dependent on public funding, the seasonal gift will be much appreciated, by the crew of the Air Ambulance and the patients it has and will continue to serve throughout the New Year.
