STAFF at Stansted Airport have chosen the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust as the hub’s charity partner for 2013.
Throughout the year, staff will be involved in a number of events to raise funds and awareness for the charity that provides a free life-saving Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for Essex and Hertfordshire.
Nick Barton, the airport’s managing director, said: “By supporting the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust we will play our part in saving lives of people who live in our region. Having a charity partner provides a strong focus to the airport’s fundraising efforts, offers staff volunteering opportunities and helps us play a critical role in supporting good causes in our local community.”
Helena Morgan, the Trust’s fundraising manager, said the organisation had already planned a programme of events, activities and staff volunteering projects at the airport.
Airport staff raised over £12,000 for 2012 charity partner, Panathlon Challenge. The Essex based charity, which organises sporting competitions for disabled youngsters, put on various fundraising activities throughout the year, including a special mini Paralympic Games in the terminal building.
