Henley Society Raises £1,000 for Thames Valley Air Ambulance

The Henley Society Spring talk given by Thames Valley Air Ambulance raised £1116 for the charity.

TVAA volunteer, Clive England told members how the service raises £14m per year to cover its outgoings with no government help, nor lottery funding.

The charity gives everybody in our community the best chance of surviving and recovering from an emergency. They provide hospital-level care to you by land and air with vital medicine and equipment along with a highly trained team of paramedics and doctors.  Together, they  do everything in their power to protect, save and revive lives with the best critical care at the scene and beyond.

The Air Ambulance service is called upon on average nine times per day and its four full-time pilots and numerous full time medical staff are kept busy from 7am until 2am the following day, 365 days a year.

The interesting talk was followed by drinks and nibbles with the Society Committee during which a ‘bucket’ donation collection was made.

Society Chairman Geoff Luckett said “It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Thames Valley Air Ambulance staff to arrange this talk and our member’s generosity reflects the significance of the vital service that the charity supplies as conveyed in Clive England’s illustrated talk.”

Clive added “We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the Henley Society members. They were a great and appreciative audience.”
