Stansted Airport donates money to Air Ambulance Trust
Tue, 14 Dec, 2010
London's Stansted Airport has donated money to the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust.
Bosses at the facility have once again opted not to send corporate Christmas cards and instead use the money to help a local charity.
Staff at Stansted Airport were consulted and the air ambulance charity, which provides free live-saving services for those in Essex and its surrounding areas, was chosen.
Herts coordinator for the organisation Nikki Caborn expressed her delight at the selection.
"It really was such a nice surprise to receive £1,350," she said. "We would like to thank all Stansted Airport staff for their continued support."
Similar comments were issued by Marcella M'Rabety, who claimed that the charity was a much better use for the funds than Christmas cards.
Established in 1997, the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance service flies specialist doctors and emergency medical equipment to the scene of an incident and quickly ferries casualties to medical facilities.
