THEY take to the skies and help airlift people in need of medical help to hospitals.
And now staff at the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance (HIOWAA) re asking people to show their support by taking part in an awareness week.
The National Air Ambulance Week has been put together by the Associate of Air Ambulances and runs from September 24 to 30.
John Perry, chief executive of the HIOWAA, said: ‘We are joining together with other air ambulances across the country, to ask everyone to get involved during National Air Ambulance Week. Why not come along to some of the events that we have planned?
‘Or you may wish to organise your own fundraising event like a cake sale, fete, or something more daring like a parachute jump or sponsored swim.
‘Whatever you decide to do, that monies raised will stay locally and help raise money for us.’
