East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is a helicopter emergency medical service provider for the people of East Anglia. The charity operates two helicopters and two rapid response vehicles from their bases in Norwich and Cambridge, and are able to reach anywhere in the region within 25 minutes. Each crew, consisting of two pilots, a doctor and a critical care paramedic (CCP), take advanced A&E level care directly to patients who have suffered life-threatening or life-changing accidents or medical emergencies and fly them to the most appropriate hospital for their needs.
“We are absolutely thrilled to act as the charity partner for the MHA Larking Gowen City of Norwich Half Marathon,” says Sophie Emmanuel, Community Fundraiser at EAAA. "As a charity we rely on the support of the community to help keep our helicopters in the sky and our doctors and CCPs providing life-saving emergency care. This fantastic event will go a long way to helping us do just that. We would encourage everyone to get involved, take on the challenge, raise money for a local charity - and have lots of fun in the process.”
