Donation of £3,000 to the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance

Club members visited the North Weald base of the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance on 5 July 2018 to present a cheque for £3,000 in support of the EHAA's activities.  Shortly after our arrival a "shout" came through and the AW169 lifted off with a full crew of medical personnel in response to a report of a drowning child.  Fortunately the flight was cancelled almost immediately on confirmation that the child was OK.  Also fortunately we were able to retrieve the cheques (presentation and real) which had been blown away by the downdraft as the helicoper lifted off ...

Pictured here are club members presenting the cheque to Natasha Robertson on behalf of EHAA, together with members of the on-duty crew.
