Tom Brake, Liberal Democrat MP for Carshalton and Wallington, has announced his support for the London Air Ambulance - ‘Your London, Your Helicopter’ fundraising campaign. The campaign is aimed at raising finances for a second helicopter for the organisation and increasing coverage of London for the next 5 years.
The London Air Ambulance is a charitable organisation, which is financed solely on donations from the generosity of local people. Last year alone, London Air Ambulance saved the lives of 76 critically injured people in Carshalton and Wallington. The ‘Your London. Your Helicopter’ campaign, to fund a second helicopter, will increase daylight operating hours for the next 5 years and provide London with 100% air ambulance coverage at all times of the day. It is hoped this will allow the service to save an estimated 400 more lives every year.
Tom Brake has commented:
“London's air ambulance has saved many lives in Carshalton and Wallington and a second one could save many more. Please give generously to this life-saving cause.”
