BikesDirect365 are proud to support the following charities
THE AIR AMBULANCE SERVICE
Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance has been circling the skies of the East Midlands since 2008, keeping people safe and helping to save lives every single day of the year.
As a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), they attend many different incidents including road traffic collisions, horse riding accidents, sporting injuries and medical emergencies such as cardiac arrests - to name but a few!
The dedicated paramedics, doctors and pilots work together to provide advanced clinical care to patients at the scene of the accident, before flying them to the most suitable hospital.
The speed of the helicopter means we can fly our patients to the hospital best equipped to treat their injuries, rather than to the nearest hospital which may not have specialist treatment available.
Flying out of East Midlands Airport they attend an average of three rescue missions every single day with the capability to attend even more should the need arise - and it often does, sometimes we end up flying back to back missions.
Each rescue mission costs an average of £1,400 so they have a team of dedicated fundraisers working hard across the counties to ensure that the helicopter remains in the sky.
