The charity was pleased to welcome one of our lucky lottery winners to our  helipad last week so that we could present the winning cheque and say thanks for her support.

Bromley resident Alison Steele scooped the top prize of £1,000 in the London’s Air Ambulance weekly lottery, which raises vital funds each year for the charity.  Thanks to lottery players across London, the charity is able to maintain its life saving service all year round.

Draws are made weekly, and each entry costs £1.  Top prize winners are also given the opportunity to take in the London skyline from the roof of The Royal London Hospital, where the charity’s helipad is based.

During her visit Alison was given a tour of the operation and met the medical team.  Speaking afterwards she said;

“London’s Air Ambulance charity is an excellent cause and it was amazing to visit the helipad to chat to the staff.  The highlight was seeing the helicopter and learning more about what the charity does for London.”

Mark Davies, Director of Development at London’s Air Ambulance said:

“Our lottery members generate vital funds that help us provide patients with the best possible care when they urgently need it. Every second counts in an emergency, as does every donation. We are hugely grateful to our lottery members like Alison for their support.”

We rely heavily on voluntary donations as the service costs £10million each year to run.  If you would like to sign up to our lottery and be in with a chance of winning like Alison, visit https://londonsairambulance.co.uk/support-us/lottery
