Air Ambulance Service Nominated for Pride of Reading Awards


A ruptured spleen, broken teeth, swollen brain and bruised lungs – these were just some of the injuries sustained by Arron Jackson who met with a serious biking accident. The unfortunate accident had occurred a few months back on March 6th of this year. Miraculously 21-year-old Arron is back on his feet, thanks to the timely rescue by Thames Valley Air Ambulance Service.

The Air Ambulance Service Took Arron to Radcliffe Hospital

Biker, Arron, was taken to Radcliffe Hospital immediately for treatment of his life-threatening injuries via air ambulance service. The young man was immediately put in induced coma as part of his treatment. The combination of quick evacuation and great treatment worked in his favor and today, Arron is back on his feet and hopes to resume duties working for his employer soon.

The Parents were Grateful to the Air Ambulance Service

In a surprising coincidence, Arron’s parents had set up a lottery for the benefit of air ambulance service about six months prior to the accident. The parents said that they were extremely pleased that they had taken the initiative. The couple were able to raise about 500 pounds so far.

The Air Ambulance Service Deserves the Award

Thames Valley Air Ambulance Service has been serving the local community for the past 15 years and undertakes over one thousand life-saving missions each year.

Pride of Reading Awards is held annually and honors individuals and institutions in the local community that display extraordinary compassion and courage against adversities.

Thames Valley Air Ambulance Service which has been serving the residents of Reading over 15 years is definitely a worthy nominee. It was Arron’s family that nominated the air ambulance service this year. Kate Martin, who is the fund-raising manager for the company said that the nomination has been a great honor.

It certainly is a nice display of gratitude towards the charitable air ambulance service.
