Medics from RAF Wyton visited Magpas to present their doctors and paramedics with some vital kit that can be used to help save lives across the region.
The visit by Corporal Kelley Austin and Senior Aircraftwoman Charlotte Wood from RAF Wyton’s medical centre was the result of a charity event held earlier in the year. The event, ‘Wyton’s Largest Loser’, gave station staff an opportunity to get fit, donate money to a great cause, and shed a few pounds in the process.
Having organised the RAF Wyton charity effort, Corporal Kelley Austin contacted Magpas to find out if there was any equipment they were looking to buy in the near future.
With the air ambulance charity in the process of replacing some compact suction units, used at the scene of medical emergencies, Kelley was able to intervene and make a charity donation equivalent to the cost of two new units.
Antonia Brickell, head of Magpas communications, said, “We are extremely grateful to the team at RAF Wyton who have generously raised funds to buy these two suction units.
