Meet Carol Mellows

We were delighted when Carol Mellows responded to our "Gifts in Wills" campaign in the Christmas 2018 edition of our Lift Off magazine. 

Carol had been airlifted by EAAA in 2008 – she had broken her neck when a gust of wind blew her and her instructor off-track during a parachute jump for a breast cancer charity at Old Buckenham Airfield. She was inspired to get back in touch and visited us in Norwich with her daughter Rosie earlier this year.

Carol said: ”The air ambulance crew literally saved my life! I had fractured and dislocated my neck and was turning blue. Their quick actions and very careful handling has enabled me to make a 97% recovery. I now love cycling and hill walking”.

Rosie added ”Thank you so much for showing us around yesterday, it meant so much to my mum and me, you were all so lovely! Thank you all for being part of the team who help save lives just like my mum's! You are all so appreciated!”
