CORNWALL Air Ambulance is giving supporters the chance to fly alongside the crew on lifesaving missions, by having their name featured on the base of their brand new helicopter.

The lifesaving charity is offering people the chance to become a #heli2 hero for a gift of £100 as part of its fundraising campaign, which aims to raise £2.85-million by the end of year to bring a second state-of-the-art AW169 helicopter to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Donators will receive their name featured on the base of the second AW169 helicopter, a personalised certificate and a heli2 heroes pin badge.

Critical Care Paramedic Lisa Ball said: “We’re delighted that Heli Heroes is back.

“We want to give our wonderful supporters an opportunity to have a closer connection to the second aircraft.

“It’s only because of the generosity of amazing people like you that we can continue to make a lifesaving difference each and every day.”

Fundraising officer Sherelle Puertas added: “Owning a second aircraft will significantly boost the resilience and capability of our service.

“It will mean that during periods of planned or unplanned maintenance, we always have the best possible aircraft ready and available to respond to the most critically ill or injured patients.”
