Hampshire and Isle Of Wight Air Ambulance

Recently, in one of our Assemblies, there was a very special guest,  one of the air ambulance fundraisers.

She took us through what would happen in a situation when an emergency call had been received, showing  us a video of an helicopter ambulance landing on a beach. An amazing fact, was that a helicopter from the company, would be able to reach anywhere in Hampshire.   She also showed us a video of an ambulance landing on a beach. An amazing fact, was that a helicopter from the company, would be able to reach anywhere in Hampshire in just 15 minutes! It could reach anywhere on the isle of white in only 20 minutes! We had an amusing demonstration of what happenes in a call with Mr Lucas acting as the call receiver  for the emergency service. At the end of the assembly a special guset visited us- a giant bear dressed as a helicopter pilot! We had fun and learny a lot about this valuable service which relies on donations to keep it running.
