Wolverhampton-based ERA is supporting the local Midlands Air Ambulance Charity throughout 2018, as its chosen charity.
Money will be raised throughout the year via a programme of activities, run by ERA’s workforce, kicking off with a Valentine’s raffle, with many more exciting events, during the year to follow.
Darren Waters, CEO at ERA said: ”We are proud to support the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity which was voted for by our employees and look forward to helping them to continue to provide this essential, life-saving service. They receive no National Lottery or government funding so all the work they do is funded by corporate and public donations, so anything we can do to help means they can continue to save lives.”
Jon Cottrell, corporate partnerships coordinator for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, added: ”With each air ambulance mission costing £2,500 on average, and requiring a pilot, two paramedics or flight doctors as well as full life support medical equipment, we are extremely grateful for the generous support that we receive from organisations such as ERA, which is essential to our lifesaving operation.”
