London’s Air Ambulance Charity’s joint partnership with Phoenix Group has been a huge success over the past six years. Since 2014, Phoenix colleagues have donated both their time and skills to London’s Air Ambulance Charity, raising money through a range of activity including sponsored sleep outs, abseiling, cycling, sky diving, three peaks challenges and runs.
While the partnership has now come to a close, the savings and retirement company will still be supporting the life-saving service through a number of ongoing initiatives, including a forthcoming programme in London schools with London’s Air Ambulance supporting STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths education).
The Phoenix logo will also be proudly displayed on one of the Charity’s helicopters, G-EHMS, in recognition of the Group’s support for the Charity over the past six years and its ongoing commitment to London.
Speaking about the partnership, Chief Executive of London's Air Ambulance Charity, Jonathan Jenkins said:
“Our joint partnership with Phoenix Group has defied all expectations and we would like to say a heartfelt thanks to everyone at Phoenix for their incredible support over the past six years. This partnership has been fundamental to our development as a charity and their employees regularly go over and above in fundraising for us.
The consistent commitment of Phoenix Group, their staff and their stakeholders has helped to keep us flying over the past six years and we are so grateful to them for helping us be there for London.”
Andy Moss, Phoenix Life CEO and Group Director, Heritage at Phoenix Group commented:
“We’re extremely proud to have been a partner of London’s Air Ambulance Charity and to have raised funds and awareness for their life saving work. It has been a fantastic experience that we have all learned from. While our formal partnership has now come to an end, we remain passionate about their work and will continue to be involved as they keep flying for London.”
