Magpas Air Ambulance announced a record number of the charity’s team members and supporters have been shortlisted for the Air Ambulance Awards of Excellence.
The national awards are held once a year by Air Ambulances U.K. (AAUK), the national body that represents the U.K.’s 21 air ambulance charities, and the awards are a chance to celebrate the vast achievements that have taken place within the sector over the past year.
This year, Magpas Air Ambulance, the charity that saves lives in Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and across the East of England 24/7, has been shortlisted for seven awards — over half the total categories.
Among the nominations is Natalie Church, Magpas Air Ambulance’s director of operations who has been shortlisted for charity staff member of the year, for bringing the new Magpas Air Ambulance base build to fruition — the latest project in her 22 years of dedication to the charity.
Magpas Air Ambulance Doctors Ali and Adriana, and Critical Care Paramedic Steve, have respectively been shortlisted for their dedication, commitment, innovation and outstanding patient care in three awards categories.
As well as these achievements, the charity also has two supporters who have been shortlisted for awards too: 11-year-old Abigail Sperrin, for young person of the year following her fundraising efforts in aid of the lifesaving service, and Alison McCreery for charity supporter of the year.
