Trinity Church of England School in Bexley raised almost £5,000 for London’s Air Ambulance after we treated a pupil who was hit by a bus. Following 12-year-old Caitlin's accident, the children and their families have raised more than enough to send the advanced trauma team to the side of another critically injured person by helicopter. 

“It was great to see the children rally behind London’s Air Ambulance after the charity helped their friend. In the twelve years that I have been in the school this is the third largest amount of money raised for an individual charity in ‘one hit’. Three children have done collections at their churches, the family of the girl who was treated and airlifted by London’s Air Ambulance have donated a significant sum and the school held a sleepover, a cake sale and other fundraising activities,” said Darren Palmer, Assistant Principal at Trinity Church of England School in Bexley. 

Caitlin and the school’s representatives visited our helipad to hand over their donation to the crew.
