Duke of Cambridge becomes Patron of London’s Air Ambulance Charity
The Duke of Cambridge has become Patron of London’s Air Ambulance Charity
The charity funds London’s Air Ambulance. Last year, the Duke was Patron of the charity’s 30th anniversary campaign, during which he flew with the crew and met patients and staff.
Thanks to the Duke’s support, the charity was able to raise awareness and reach key milestones during the anniversary campaign, including raising £1.4 million in funding to develop new training facilities.
London’s Air Ambulance was founded in 1989 and has treated over 40,000 patients. The crew has attended major incidents in London, including 7/7, the Grenfell Tower fire and the London Bridge terror incident. The ambulance is primarily founded by London’s Air Ambulance Charity, as well as Barts health NHS Trust.
Jonathan Jenkins, CEO of London’s Air Ambulance Charity, said: “We are honored that The Duke of Cambridge has chosen to become Patron of London’s Air Ambulance Charity after getting to know us last year. The Duke truly understands our work and knows that every second counts in an emergency. We know that with his help, as well as the continued support of the public, our crews can reach those who need them most – serving the people of London 24 hours a day, every day of the year.”
