We're excited to announce a brand new charity partnership in Bedfordshire. Staff at London Luton Airport have chosen to support EAAA over the next three years, alongside Luton Foodbank.
As well as fundraising support, we will also benefit from free refuelling and waived landing fees as and when one of our helicopters needs to land at the airport. This will be a huge help to our life-saving operation in Bedfordshire over the next three years. During 2020, EAAA was tasked to help someone in need of critical care in Bedfordshire 122 times.
“We are incredibly grateful to London Luton Airport for supporting East Anglian Air Ambulance over the next three years. As a charity that relies almost entirely on public support, the pandemic has had a significant impact on our community’s ability to fundraise. Our crews continue to provide a vital emergency service to the people of Luton and surrounding areas 365 days a year, and this partnership will not only help us raise awareness of our work, but also support us in raising the vital funds needed to keep flying and saving lives.”
Commenting on the new partnership, LLA’s CEO Alberto Martin said: “Supporting our local community is an incredibly important part of airport life. Our adopted charities are a perfect fit with our focus on creating a ‘healthy today and a skilled tomorrow’. We have some really exciting fund-raising ideas planned for the new partnership and are really passionate about making a difference”.
A huge thank you from all of us to London Luton Airport for this incredible support.
