United Kingdom Celebrates Air Ambulance Week
It would not be entirely wrong to say that air ambulance charities depend hugely on the donations and fund-raising that are driven by local communities. Come to think of it, the whole cycle is highly mutually beneficial. It is estimated that, in the United Kingdom, one air ambulance is pushed into service every 10 minutes. There are over 21 charities in the country that operate daily and aid people. In most instances, the service is provided absolutely free of cost. National Air Ambulance week, celebrated in the country, is a chance for people, in general, to show appreciation of the service provided by these life-saving charities.
