ERA Supports Midlands Air Ambulance Charity

Wolverhampton-based security specialist ERA is supporting the local Midlands Air Ambulance Charity throughout 2018 as its chosen charity.

Money will be raised throughout the year via a programme of activities, run by ERA’s workforce, kicking off with a Valentine’s raffle, with many more events to follow during the year.

Jon Cottrell, corporate partnerships coordinator for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity said, “We are responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances across six Midlands counties, namely Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. With over 2,000 missions per year, we are one of the busiest air ambulances in the UK.

“With each air ambulance mission costing £2,500 on average, and requiring a pilot, two paramedics or flight doctors as well as full life support medical equipment, we are extremely grateful for the generous support that we receive from organisations such as ERA, which is essential to our lifesaving operation.”

Darren Waters, CEO at ERA said, “We are proud to support the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity which was voted for by our employees and look forward to helping them to continue to provide this essential, life-saving service. They receive no National Lottery or government funding so all the work they do is funded by corporate and public donations, so anything we can do to help means they can continue to save lives.”
