Following our charity partner London’s Air Ambulance's city-wide campaign to acquire and sustain a much-needed second helicopter, residents of London breathed a sigh of relief as this month saw the moment that we had all been waiting for.
As a very proud principal sponsor, we were delighted with the arrival of the highly anticipated G-LNDN. London's Air Ambulance is the city’s only airborne emergency service, providing an advanced trauma team to critically injured patients within the M25 boundary. With the additional helicopter, it is predicted that the charity will be able to reach an extra 400 patients a year, which is hopeful news for the 10 million people living and working across London. It certainly didn’t take long to prove the viability of the additional helicopter, which took off to a mission within moments of landing at its helipad at the Royal London Hospital.
Graham Hodgkin, CEO of London’s Air Ambulance, added: “Seeing the second helicopter touch down on the helipad today marks a historic milestone for both for the charity and the people of London. This simply wouldn’t have been possible without our wonderful supporters.”
Nic Budden, CEO of Foxtons, commented: "We are delighted to be supporting the vital work that London's Air Ambulance does and helping the charity to maintain its service and contribute towards long-term sustainability.”
In addition to sponsorship commitments, Foxtons will continue to support our charity partner, with many fundraising events planned throughout the year.
