How will our referral scheme work?
We’re always keen to spread the word about how an ISO management system can strengthen a business. If you successfully recommend us to another business, we will donate £50 to our chosen charity, the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, who we are proud to support. In addition, we’ll thank you with your choice of reward: a case of wine or £50 of High Street vouchers. To offer your referrals, please contact our team on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0330 058 5551.
In recent years we have raised over £4,500 for this vital service. This year we are campaigning to raise an additional £3,000 and we need your help to hit our target! We will be running various fundraising campaigns throughout the year so please keep an eye on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
What areas does it cover?
The Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and West Midlands. They also offer secondary cover to the surrounding areas, such as Warwickshire and mid-Wales.
Why does it need your support?
The Midlands Air Ambulances can reach a specialist hospital from anywhere in the region in less than 15 minutes so they are vital in an emergency. If a casualty is airlifted to hospital within the Golden Hour (one hour of an incident), their chances of survival are significantly increased.
With each mission costing an average of £2,500, the Charity needs to raise in excess of £9 million each year to remain operational. As it receives no state or lottery funding, it solely relies on funding by the public and local businesses.
What will our £3,000 pay for?
The £3,000 we raise will contribute towards the following costs:
£350 for a clinical flight suit
£600 for a pair of aircrew response bags
£1,500 for an aircrew helmet
£2,500 for one air ambulance mission
£4,000 for a ventilator for use on board the helicopter
£15,000 for a life pack, to include a heart monitor, defibrillator and oxygen
£75,000 for annual medical supplies
£100,000 for annual airbase equipment
