Premium outdoor media owner Ocean Outdoor has announced London’s Air Ambulance as its chosen charity and will work with the city’s flying advanced trauma team to help secure future funding.
Ocean will use its iconic premium outdoor digital sites to raise funds by promoting the work of this vital emergency service, starting with National Air Ambulance Week which takes place this year between September 24 and 30.
To help raise funds, Londoners are being invited to Wear Red on Friday, September 28 and donate at least £1 to the London service.
“London has just one air ambulance for 10 million people and treated more than 2,000 seriously injured people last year,” says Ocean Outdoor Marketing Manager Helen Beacham. “It’s a service which relies heavily on public donations. By using our premium digital network we can promote the work of the service and help ensure that it continues to save lives.”
Dr Julian Thomson from London’s Air Ambulance said: “We are very grateful to Ocean Outdoor for supporting this vital and life saving London charity. With the awareness and financial support of the 10 million people we serve, London’s Air Ambulance will be able to continue saving lives in London and secure a second helicopter for the capital.”
