WildTrack’ Charity of the Year 2016 is East Anglian Air Ambulance who provide helicopter emergency medical service for the people of East Anglia. Since their launch in 2000 they have attended over 16,000 lifesaving missions, touching the lives of many thousands of people.
With each lifesaving mission costing £3,500, EAAA is challenged with raising £10.2 million this year to keep their two helicopters, Anglia One & Anglia Two, in the skies above our region. As a registered charity, they receive no regular, direct government funding and rely solely on voluntary funding and the support of the people of East Anglia.
The crew comprise of specialist pre- hospital doctors and critical-care paramedics,operating out of two high-tech helicopters from 7am until 7pm from their Norwich base and from 7am until 1.30am from their Cambridge base. They were the first air ambulance in the country to attend helicopter emergency medical incidents in the hours of the darkness to unknown and unlit sites.
They aim to provide the best possible outcomes for people unfortunate enough to be involved in incidents or medical emergencies.
We are pleased to be supporting them, so please feel free to donate and keep and eye out for any upcoming events.
